    Please, please improve search capabilities on the forum - they stink

    Alex Kerin

      I love this forum, but searching it is so painful. I have a lot of posts on it - tying to find one of my old ones rarely works. This is one of the reasons I see the same questions pop up the whole time - you certainly cannot blame the users..

       

      Two requests:

       

      • Change however the internal search works now to work correctly
      • Change the way the pages are accessed by Google - even Google has no idea about the forum postings - this is critical for Tableau's visibility, let alone providing an alternative search facility.

       

      Here's an example of what Google knows about concatenate in the forums - I know of at least 10 posts where the word is used. Also note the summary text available....

      Even a non-site specific search does not pull up the result:
