Student Search Bar?

My students were wondering if there is a "Search" function that can be added for students.  Despite our modeling/instruction students still struggle to find stuff and they are curious if they could use a "search" box?

Hello,  @e02175  Welcome to the Canvas Community! A search function such as you've described isn't available at this time. However, this has been identified as a top development priority (see https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10748-khaki-2017-priorities --it's #8 on a list of 12), and you'll find more information about the idea at https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/1165-comprehensive-course-search-tool-searching-course-content... .

There are also some great comments here: Good way to search content within a course? It's a little tech and coding-heavy, but a few Community Members shared a few good workaround options!
