ITI's goal is to improve content findability on https://www.icann.org.

We’ll use your feedback to help us deliver a new search experience that meets the needs of our global community.

Feedback Needed

In April 2018, we asked for your input on the updated Acronyms and Terms feature. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. Since then, the ITI team has been working to implement the improved content search you need.

Six new pages are available for your feedback. These pages include:

  • Announcements
  • Blogs
  • Announcements Advanced Search
  • Blogs Advanced Search
  • For Journalists and What’s New.

We’ve added new and enhanced search features to make it easier for you to find information. Some of these features appear across all pages, such as breadcrumbs and consistent site navigation for the six United Nations languages. Additional features for each page are highlighted below.

Please keep in mind, these pages are in the early stages of construction and the functionality is not complete. We want your feedback first before we begin full implementation of all the functionality. This is to reduce development cost and time.

Click on item(s) below that you are interested in providing feedback on. You will be asked to complete a short survey to help guide your feedback. 

Thank you in advance. Your input is key to ensuring we are delivering the improved findability you need.
