Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit APP-I-5176 Provide the ability to set search results to display items as a distinct list (1 result per unique feature, idea, etc.).

Sort search results so all that are found for a particular idea or feature, etc., are shown next to each other. Merged

Search results should be ordered so that all results pertaining to the same idea (or feature, etc.) are shown next to each other.

Currently I see a result for idea DEMO-I-23, then several other results for other ideas, then another result for DEMO-I-23.  It appears one result was for the title, and the other for the description.  This is because the results are returned in descending date/time for the sub-part (title, description).  I'd rather see the last date/time that anything on my idea/feature got updated, and all the sub-parts shown below there, so that I can more efficiently scan for the idea I wanted without duplicates showing in the results.  It's even worse when comments are displayed in the search results.

    Search results should be grouped per idea or a feature, not just listed. Now I'm seeing the same Idea 3 times in the search results, which is misleading

    Additionally Idea (topic) and Idea Description are two different records in Aha!. In case the search term is found on both, you get two results. Maybe Idea and Idea Description could be consolidated as one in results.

    User is given no clue about the type of the result. Both records mentioned above share the type Idea.
