When I start typing in the search box at the top of the page on the Power BI service, it doesn't prioritize items that exactly match the text that I'm typing in. It seems to be sorting the suggested items based on the content type, rather than how closely the name matches the text that I'm typing. I typed the exact name of a report that I was looking for, and the report didn't show up in the suggested items under the search box. It did show up in the results after I hit search, but that doesn't excuse the difference between the expectations and the reality of the search box. I would expect it to first show items that start with the text that I'm typing in, followed by items that contain the text that I'm typing, followed by items that match because of some fuzzy searching. Currently the results it's showing seem very fuzzy and aren't anywhere close to the actual item I'm looking for.
When you type in a keyword and the overlay drop-down should list all the artifacts that match that term . So when the content you search for exists with the same keywords as the rest of the content, what is displayed is the result of the fuzzy query.
