Respected Contributor

I did a  search in the Office 365 roadmap for data loss and got 1 result, then I searched for DLP and there were 9 results. Given that the roadmap is intended for business users, I think that searches should not require them to know the acronyms and abbreviations.

 

Can this be improved? Maybe a thesaurus could be added like we do in SharePoint, or authors could be directed to spell out everything the first time it is used in each article (which is a good writing practice for everyone).

Great insight, and thanks for the heads up! We're actively working to improve search on the website (for example, searching by Feature ID will be possible very soon), and this is a scenario we want to address. I'll pass along the feedback and see what we can do.

@Dean Gross Nice finding.

 

Microsoft should reward with perks for finding out such precise Bugs or issues :) LOL

Thanks, I agree, if they did I would have received many :)

Dean has earned - and continues to earn - as many high fives as I can throw his way!
