Search Operators in Chat Platform
TLDR Jamshid inquired about search operators, and Jason confirmed two supported operators: phrase match and exclusion. No complete list is documented in one place.

“search this” - seems to be a phrase match
“search this” -that - seems to exclude search results with ‘that’
“search this” +that - seems to increase ranking of results with ‘that’ in the search.
Are there any others? Is there a list of supported operators? Thanks.
I’m surprised to hear about the third behavior!
