Suggestion: Add a sort by to the result of a search

    Question

  • I would very much like to see a sort by in the result of a search within a forum.   I would like to see amoung others, the following
    1) - Last Post Time
    2) - Original Post Time
    3) - Original Poster

    Just today, I needed to find something that, if it had been discussed, the discussion would have started within the last week.  My search yielded about 100 threads and there was not reasonable way to narrow the search.  A sort by Original Post Time, would have quickly led me to the correct thread, if it existed, or told me that it did not.
    Thanks Roy

  • Imo your posts here hardly need the Suggestion: prefix ...   If they did almost all posts here would need such a prefix.

  • How about speaking to the quaility of the suggestion instead of the form it was presented in?

  • Hi,

    i would support your suggestion, because i often run in the same problem.

    But i would like to add another sort criteria to it

    4. Answered/UnAnswered

    But i guess this sorting based on this criterias wouldn`t be easy to implement at all, because of the posibility of the search to find articles/help/posts in other places too, not only in forums but also on msdn/microsoft.
    If you have got questions about this, just ask. Mark the thread as answered if the answer helps you. This helps others who have the same problem !
