Enhancing Search Function in Forum Search RRS feed

  • Question

  • What I was looking for was some way to apply the 'Google Style' search options like using the minus sign to exclude items:
    "Diamond Rings" -square -gold -sterling etc.

    Having an expanded search option like that where we could indicate that we want two words in a search like "Pay Steps" would elminate a million posts where the word "Pay" was used but didn't relate to Pay Steps.

    In a previous post on the Dynamics GP Forum the response was that this type of enhanced search option was 'impossible' so I wanted to find a way to escalate this discussion.  There doesn't seem to be a 'right' place to post this as I can't find a Forum on Microsoft Forums in general.  So this thread is where I thought I'd start trying to escalate this option in order to enhance the search functionality and usefulness of this valuable tool.

  • Hi, Mike, 

     

    it seems your question is about the forum search,  not about specific Microsoft Academic Search (MAS) features, is it correct?  this particular forum is about MAS.

     

    thanks.

  • I understand what you're saying but I've been unable to find 'the right place' to put this question to the community.

    I'd be happy to move/repost it in the proper forum.  Can you assist with where that might be?  Everything is product-focused or topic-focused but there appears to be no forum on the forum...  :-)

  • Hi, Mike,

    Could you try to repost your question in http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/suggest/threads? I think it is a more proper place to talk about this, thanks.

     

    Best,
