Find Course by key words

    When searching for a course on Canvas, it will only return results for courses containing exact phrases. In other words, key word search is not available. For example, if a course name is "Online Algebra 2 Spring 2018 Sem 1", and the search term is "Algebra Sem", no results will be returned. Is there any way around this because admin person does not necessarily know the name of the course as well as the teachers or students? Can key word search be a feature in a future Canvas release? This will shorten the time it takes to find a course. I also suggest that you consider search course by course#.
