I suggest you ....

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?
Thanks

        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.
