I use search in Training Log in the app often when I want to find past activities. However the search has one serious usability flaw in my opinion - when I search for multiple words it searches activities that match ANY of the words. It would be far more reasonable to search activities that combine ALL of the searched words.

For example, let's say I want to find my previous runs of Orcas 50K race. I had just a few of them in my long running history. If I type "Orcas" alone, I get a large number of runs that weren't the race or where I even mentioned Orcas in the description. That's too many results. However if I add "50K" to narrow the result, instead I get a bunch of other 50K races included, and everything that mentions any 50K. That doesn't make sense. Adding search terms should narrow the results, not expand them, at least when searching in your own activities.

Allow users to add multiple keywords when searching activities from the mobile app. For the folks that use specific keywords in the description of their activities, there is no way to search using multiple strings that I am aware of. An example would be the search for activities that contain the keywords "gravel" and "tempo."

ability to search your activities based on who you rode with. some rides are easier to remember when it is with multiple people or a group. it would be nice to search for your rides based on the people you rode with. the search could show a list of rides that you rode with a particular person or a group of people.

Hi Folks -

Totally agree ... at least we need a wild card that will force a search of the whole string "AND", rather than an "OR" search.

In my instance, I'm looking to search 2500 records for "Cent Cols Dolomites" - and only that - I don't want results for "Cent" and "Cols" and "Dolomites" ....

e.g. "Cent Cols Dolomites" ... or $Cent Cols Dolomites$ ,,, or some such... 

Simples - really ... 👍😊. Txs.
