Search - choose which courses to search and where the item is found

Search function currently searches all courses and doesn't tell you which folder the item can be found in (just which course).  Would be improved by

1. being able to choose the course/s to search in

2. list which folder the found items are in on the course/s

and/or

3. when you click on the search result  - currently the file etc opens, but the menu showing the folder structure doesn't - if the folder structure was shown, when the file opened - you'd know where it was

    Hi, thanks for sharing 😊

    To make it easier for users to find a resource, we are now introducing search for course resources. Users will find a clickable drop-down list displaying their search results.

    This will be included in the next itslearning update in approx. one week.

    Hi, the course search is a great feature - and does solve some problems.

    However, it was the main search we use more.  Could the 'main' search be improved by having which folder the resources are in, in the list of results.  Like it does in the course search. 

    We often have to edit resources that are in multiple courses. 

    We have to search the main search to find out which courses they are on, then search each course to find the folder it is in - to actually edit it.  Or prior to the course search existing, find it by Ctrl+F in the status and follow up > summary menu of each course.
