The search textbox is too broad. 

 

For example, we have segments names per country and per site, so Site ABC AU, Site ABC US, Site XYZ AU, Site XYZ US, etc. If I want to search for Site AU, I expect to see only Site ABC AU, Site XYZ AU, but instead I also see Site ABC US and Site XYZ US.

Thanks for the feedback - this is because we have employed a "fuzzy search", which basically filters using wildcard characters in between each character in your search term (ie, "S*i*t*e* * A*U*").  Most of our customers really like this fuzzy search approach, as it often finds things that people want most of the time, where a traditional search wouldn't.  However, it's good to know that you wish it were less broad and didn't necessarily employed the fuzzy search algorithm.  Would you want some extra control mechanism like double-quotes around the search term to do more exact searching?

Love the idea of quotes-around-strings to specify "no fuzzy" within a search.
