Course Catalog Search - Keyword Filter with Enhanced Search

Allowing administrators to filter based on keywords allows greater precision and accuracy when locating content within the course catalog.

With this enhancement, it is now possible to filter by keyword when Enhanced Search is enabled on the course catalog search page. The Keyword filter uses “partial match” and “starts with” when returning search results. The filter can be enabled and disabled in the Search Preferences.

To enable, go to Admin > tools > Core Functions > Core Preferences > Search > Manage Search Preferences > training. In the Training section, scroll to Filters and select Keywords under the Admin Pages column to activate this filter.

Note: This enhancement currently does not support the Keyword filter in Global Search.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

A search filter based on Keywords provides greater flexibility and precision when searching for accurate results.
