The AdvancedSearch project originates from WMDE's Technical Wishes project. More info can be found [[ https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Technische_W%C3%BCnsche/Spezialisierte_Suche | in German]] and [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WMDE_Technical_Wishes/AdvancedSearch | in English]].
It is now in a usable state, with some more functionality to come (e.g. deep category search). For giving feedback on the interaction and testing the already implemented keywords, it should become a beta feature on de-wiki.
It is planned to become beta between **Nov 20 -23** (update to come)
It is planned to make AdvancedSearch a beta feature for all wikis at the start of 2018, and to take it out of beta towards August 2018.
**Must-haves before deploy**
The AdvancedSearch project aims to make visible what search help exists already. It adds a form to the Special:Search page, where keywords and other search tools can be used through input fields.
