CH Engineering when will search feature be updated?

LOCKED DISCUSSION
weinstein5 Feb 22, 2007 02:57 AM

There was a thread started by engineering looking for suggestions on how to improve searching http://www.chowhound.com/topics/367978 three weeks ago with a constant theme to be able to search by date and now has more than 100 posts -

I know you guys are busy but when will sort/search by date be incorporated into the search feature?

Thanks in advance-

      We understand the desire to have more features quickly. We're working as fast as we can to address many of these requests. However, we want to make sure that features are valuable and reliable before we launch them, and that requires flexibility. Please be patient, and know that new features and improvements are coming.

        Thanks for the update - I think I speak for many of the users on CH that it would be nice to have posted a release schedule fort hese updates - or at least an expected release date -

          For the time being, why can't there just be a search by date option, until you figure the rest out? No one has answered this oft-asked question.
          As for your current plan, are we talking days, weeks, months?

          It has been another two weeks and now there are more then 140 posts from the original thread - has there been any progress on fixing the search feature?

          Inquiring minds want to know -

            Again, the Engineering Team is working as fast as they can. We'd rather they work on it than spend time trying to project completion dates. We're all eager for this to be done and just need to be patient.

              Do not get me wrong what CH engineering has done has been excellent and I think I can speak for the other users we appreaciate it - but having managed a few software development projects to not determine deadlines or projected end dates will just cause the project to drag on - perhaps start with a smaller objective such as what was suggested in the original thread - to just sort the results form a search by date and not worrying about of other user modifiable request that are part of that thread - I think this achievable and should be achievable -

              Thank you for all your ard work -

                Yes I agree w/ weinstein5 completely.

                I think INCREMENTAL improvements such as sorting the results by date is what we chowhounds want.

                I know I don't want to wait months and months for a complete overhaul of the search system.

                  Updates, when they're available, will go in the main search thread: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/367978

              I agree, but one question: why did you choose to undo something that worked fine if it was going to take so long to replicate it? Why no just leave the old search function up until the new one was ready to go?

              As things stand now the functionality of the board is deeply compromised for many of us very regular users by the lack of the important ability to search by date. Did somebody not realize this, or not realize how difficult it was going to be to replicate this function?

                Another month has passed - the original request by CH Engineering looking for requests on what search features are needed http://www.chowhound.com/topics/367978 has reached 226 posts and still no update to the search feature - at a minimum if you can just sort the results of surtrent searches by date - that would be a huge improvement -

                Again thank you for all you hard work at keeping the Choqhound up and running -
