You know when you're searching for something and you have it right on the tip of your tongue but you can't quite get it out? And then someone makes a suggestion and it's exactly what you were thinking about?

Well great news, because at Zapnito we know exactly what that feels like so we will very soon be releasing an update to our search feature to help with this problem. The update to the search feature will help anticipate what you're looking for and offers you suggestions of people and content. 

When you search for a word, phrase or person the search box will open a dropdown menu offering you suggestions that looks like this;

This will offer you a maximum of 2 people and 2 pieces of content, with an option at the bottom to open the wider search results.

At the beginning of August we released an update to our whole search feature that I wrote about here. The typeahead search works in the same way; The search scans the title, intro, body content, and user name, and the results are ordered by relevancy and recency, so you should always see the latest and most pertinent content first.

We hope that this update is useful for you and your users. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about this new release support@zapnito.com
