Search feature

Can the search feature be improved or expanded? You can not search on words less than 3 letters and if you try phrase, you get bogus results.

Example:

Try searching for "ITP" or "ATS" You can't. If you search "ITP Diesel" you get "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." If you search without quotes, you get random junk that doesn't relate. It will only search "diesel".

Very frustrating.

I'll ask a question if it takes over a certain amount of time looking. Lately, it's easier/faster to just google the info I need. Sad part? Half the time I get links to this site. That's just

i agree..being new to the org and trying to navigate around (not that its that difficult to follow links anyways) its easier to ask and get responses from everyone here. people are definitely more friendly and helpful than the search function

I can't help with the Search feature directly...but I can bring this thread to the attention of those that might be able to.
