Hi guys,

What does the search field do in discussions search? It never seems to return any results??

    It functions like a general search, so you can search inside discussions. It doesn't currently allow for private discussion searches though, that is coming in the next few weeks.

    What are you searching for exactly? Are you referring to the account?

    That's really what I wondered actually—whether it's searching private
    discussions. Almost all our discussion threads are private so the
    search is virtually useless at present.

    That's cool, though, I look forward to the update.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to the update as well. I'll do my best to hard press our developer and UI guys to get it polished off as soon as possible. Once a private discussion is off my grid it's practically impossible to get back to it. I have to carefully use queues on discussions I want to manually follow up on for the time being.

    But soon though. I'll let you know once it makes it live.

    Just deployed this fix, if you are a supporter you should be able to search private discussions as well.
