2718433 - Searching with Quotation Marks in Report Center is Not Returning Exact Matches

Symptom

Putting quotation marks ("") around a search term is not returning exact matches when searching for report names in Report Center

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics

Cause

The quotations ("") are currently used to ignore characters like !@#$%^&*()-=+><?; they are not used to do exact string matching.

Resolution

Exact string matching through the use of quotation marks around the search term is currently not supported in Report Center.

This may be different to search engines you are familiar with. This is currently expected behavior but the product team is reviewing this logic internally to improve it.
