With the new search in the new UX, a search for the entire catalogue can only be carried out if an "*" is entered in the search field. This represents a deterioration in user-friendliness.
In the previous search, it was possible to perform an empty search to display the entire catalogue by clicking on the magnifying glass symbol without entering anything.
Will the previous behaviour be made available again and is it planned in the roadmap?
With the new integrated Learning experience, we've expanded what can be searched, provided additional filters to narrow the search results, and improved the overall user experience. You will see keywords highlighted in the description of the search results, the count next to filter options, the ability to filter by attribute, and the bookmark action from the results page.
There is indeed a change in behavior: A keyword is now required to trigger a search, which helps learners find the best results, faster. The "empty search" option had the purpose of helping learners discover new content, but with the new experience, learners will directly receive learning recommendations that are personalized right on the home page. In addition, learning content is even easier to discover now since users see suggested results and search keywords as they start typing into the search bar.
