I really like the new Notion search. Quite fast and has great filter and sort options. Also allows to open pages in a new tab with a nifty shortcut.

Problem is, they neglected to include comments in the index. Huge need of my team, hope it comes soon in the next release! Without this I remain hesitant about how much my team can really "dump" into Notion, as comments, when used correctly, are a great way to get key content within one tool, and not stuck on an island in Email or Slack.

Slack search with an easy cmd+k is one of the most accessible search. While given how diverse and unstructured the messages in an org could be, it does a fab job in giving all the right filters to the user.

LinkedIn is yet another powerful search -- probably the only thing good about the product. You can virtually find the person you are looking for anywhere.

Grabbing the low-hanging fruit here with Command E :) Its reach and speed are second to none!

The search tool I use all day, every day is Alfred. The best feature is likely that it learns over time what you're looking for, so if you open Photoshop more than Apple Photos, typing ph will bring up Photoshop first. Then, you can drill down into your search results, seeing more info about the file or application inside Alfred, choosing which app to use to open a file, and more. Keeps you focused on what you're trying to accomplish without focus switching—something I don't think any online search tool has done quite as well.

Spotlight on iOS fills a similar space (as does Spotlight on Mac), but Alfred's little touches make it better.

Interesting! Is it hard to get Yext to index your site enough to populate the detailed search, or is it pretty automatic?

Yext is built on a Knowledge Graph, so once the content is added to the KG and a small script is dropped into your site search box, it is available and live. I sound like an infomercial but you can get more context here :D https://www.yext.com/products/answers/
