please enable the ability to search queries containing Dashes
SharePoint search has always been annoying about this :
Many serial numbers or unique identifiers (including native SharePoint Document IDs) contain Dashes as separator. The problem is that, when querying the search engine with something like that : 5154-4496-1654, it will understand 5154 NOT 4496 NOT 1654 and then return nothing. This is REALLY anoying!!!!
Could you please change this?
Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it! As André commented, if you enclose the serial number in double quotes, search will treat the number as a whole, and you should get the result you’re looking for.

Hi, i think that for this particular case you could use your serial number inside double quotes.
Like this "5154-4496-1654" and SharePoint search will understand it as a entire term and not 5154 Not 4496 Not 1654.
