Our users are reporting that the ideas search on our ideas portal isn't returning useful results.
Checking into this today, "OR" operators are used between search terms in the portal, whereas the search in aha uses AND operators.
In a typical use case, searching in the portal for "copy paste dashboard" returns 34 results which are mostly irrelevant. Searching in aha as a licenses user produces 3 results which are completely relevant.
Can you update the logic to be consistent with the aha application?
This is an intentional design. The rational is that most searching in the ideas portal is to find related ideas. Using an OR query there makes it more likely that related (but slightly different) ideas would also be surfaced.
We recently rolled out support for new boolean operators (in both the application and ideas portals) to allow for more advanced search queries. These operators include AND, OR, and NOT and can be combined with parenthesis.
