Are there any search related wildcard operations


When searching by performing a query, are there any searching wildcard operations you can enter to find certain text strings?

I am asking that as it appears you have to type in a whole word to find an item.

e.g If I wanted to locate an item titled "London Shopping" I have to perform a query such as "q: London" or "q: Shopping"

Are there any wildcard operations like "*" "&" "?"

e.g Type in "lon*" to find all items that start with "lon" regardless of the number of letters

or type in "Shop*" then it would find both "Shop" and "Shopping" titled items

Type in "?ook" to find "book" or "Cook"

My examples here are probably a bit too generic and is something that you would use @labels for to sort, but here's hoping you have wildcard operations or shall I pop over and add to the votebox? ;-)

Really enjoying the revamped app and website!!
