Search with multiple keywords

Hi,

 

I've created a nice knowledge management application where people can find there answer very quickly. Now because of the fact the knowledge within in the database is growing and growing there was some feedback from the users if it is possible to search on multiple words like "Holiday", "Procedure" So that you will find for examplewithin the database: "here you can find when you can go on a holiday. Please click on the procedure.. etc."

 

So that the above keywords will also give results even if it is not in order.

 

Hope some can help me with this? 

 

I know btw That there was an article where there was a solution with i thought to create columns etc. But I can't find this articile anymore.

I am not sure, I haven't tried it. If it is, I think it's going to be slow.
If not, you can retrieve the data of the sharepoint list using Flow. How many records does the list have? 
You can try it.

I created a workaround to search for ALL keywords but not necessarily consecutively found.  I only searched in a single column, but you could modify the code for multiple columns I'm sure.  I answered in reply to a different question, but I think it applies here too, so I will just link to it:
