Improved search functionality in IBM BlueworksLive

Our organization uses widely IBM BlueworksLive as the standard process documentation tool. Many processes have been created, many accompanying attachments are stored in the system. The user needs a quick and exact identification of the process relevant for his/her purpose. The present search functionality
The present search functionality does not meet expectations to a modern and state-of-the-art search functionality as relevant processes are difficult to find and support the daily work of the Covestro organization.
The improved search functionality helps to identify the wanted content with very few clicks and secures the acceptance of BlueworksLive for more than thousand users.

    Thanks for your request, Ruediger! We definitely intend to improve the Blueworks Live Search capabilities. It is a significant piece of work, however, and will likely not happen until 2020. We like your ideas a lot, thanks for sharing them! Is there any way that you can share the pdf (BWL_Advanced Search.psf) as an attachment to this RFE? It is linked from the Word document that you attached to the RFE, but we are unable to access it. Thanks!
