Option for searching with boolean operators OR / AND

Continuing the discussion from Search (Build 884) Beethoven Symphony 2 - poor results:

Roon Core Machine

Networking Gear & Setup Details

Connected Audio Devices

Number of Tracks in Library

Description of Issue

Please, give us the option to SEARCH WITH BOOLEAN OPERATION.

All methods of retrieval should offer the boolean operators.
It should be possible to set a filter “STRICTLY” (or not)

The results with the algorithm of Roon are not very useful in some cases. If you decide on keeping this algorithm, you should sort the results by (a better) relevance.

The following results of searching “Beethoven Symphony 2” are not relevantly:

Ok, sometimes the right composition appears in this special case:

If anyone is searching in this manner, it doesn’t make sense to offer piano trios, violin sonatas or something near it.

Top Results are changing by the day (sometimes) within the same library:

Haydn has composed over 100 symphonies. Try it successively. Why these “Top result”(s)


Why this “Top result” ???



WHY THIS ???

++
All shown albums and tracks are alright

+++
But Roon’s recommendations for the compositions are less meaningful.

++++
The recommendation for the “Top result” is absolute nonsens.

PLEASE, would you be so kind to RECONSIDER YOUR ALGORITHM and YOUR CONCEPTION.
Please give all your users the OPTION FOR the BOOLEAN OPERATION

Thank you so much for your appreciation, your efforts and your support.
Roon is the first and the last bastion and the only one for the classical fan community

Hi,
very good. I agree to this feature request. Thanks :+1:

After Roon 1.8 Build 898 now there are better “Top results”. Thank you for the improvement and your efforts.
