Content Result Indicators provided after Quick Searches

After searching multiple content types from the Quick Search box on the Home page, you can now quickly identify the types that have retrieved results, and those that have not.

As shown in the following example, a double chevron (>>) is displayed to the right of each content type that generated results, while a 0 is displayed for all others.


This saves you time by not having to click through each content type to check for results.


Optimized Home Page Response Time

Some users have reported that the home page loads slowly--especially for accounts with large numbers of alerts, saved searches, and recent searches. Other users have reported that some search results are taking longer than usual.

With this release, we have implemented a variety of system upgrades to dramatically improve the overall user experience. For example, the Home page will now load much more quickly, plus searches will run a lot faster. However, please note that whenever you include a large number of sources in a search, the system still might need a little extra time to produce your results. When these conditions occur, the following message will display:

Search underway
