Ad Hoc Analysis Search available in Workspace

Hi

I am one of the people who still use Ad Hoc more than Workspace. I do like Workspace, but there is one main reason for my love to Ad Hoc.

When I search within my thousands of segments, it does not matter whether I write "Car sale" or "Sale Car" as search phrase in Ad Hoc. It will find the stuff nevertheless.

In Workspace I have to remember exactly what order my segments are named.

This is such a big difference for someone playing around with thousands of segments. I do have namestructures on them, but the order can be difficult to recall at times. Did I put the "." before or after "Sweden" for example.

Anyway. Please update the workspace search box so that it does this as well as Ad Hoc

Agreed! I have run into this a few times where I don't remember the exact name of the dimension so I'll write, e.g. "ID" or "Title" only to add another qualifying name and not find it.

It would also be great to be able to filter results post-hoc. For example, I may realize after starting to type that I am interested only in dimensions, not segments or metrics, but in order to filter to just dimensions I have to delete my keyword, click "Dimensions" and then search again.
