There are always some searches that produce no results. The majority of them seem to be misspellings or typos. What I suggest is to add the ability to create a "dictionary". If an administrator sees any search term producing no results that is a misspelling or typo, he/she could click on such term and enter the correct term. So, if a user searches with incorrect misspelling in the future, the system would automatically direct the search to the correct word.

I mentioned this on the post I merged with yours but wanted to make it easy for you to find too:
We don’t have any plans for something specific to address this right now but I do understand what you’re looking for and why. We are continuing to push forward on additional ML enhancements to search that, in the long run, should mean you wouldn’t need to do this manual work much. That said we’ll keep an eye on this topic!
Our team’s current workaround for this: add a markdown to the bottom of the card and include the typos/misspellings/alternative terms in a collapsible section. Here are the details:
I hope that helps as we wait for a more permanent/embedded solution!
And to your final question, yes, we do find that this helps with surfacing in a search!
@Rachel Wiggins !! Very helpful indeed.
