Typesense Username Search Issue with Dashes or Underscores
TLDR Jonathan had issues with searching for usernames with dashes or underscores in Typesense. Kishore Nallan advised using the
symbols_to_index parameter to index special characters.

However, it seems when I type in dashes or underscores, typesense doesn’t filter down the results at all. How can I change this behavior? Ideally, when i type in a dash, it should show only results where a dash is in the field.

If you want to index and make "-" searchable, take a look at the
symbols_to_indexparam here: https://typesense.org/docs/0.23.1/api/collections.html#schema-parameters
