Blocked search methods - need for or requirements?

Was wondering if anyone's ever had a requirement or need to block any specific, (out of the box) search methods within Trim, HPRM, Content Manager in their respective histories (& any supporting justifications?)

Re: Blocked search methods - need for or requirements?

Years ago I would disable them for customers in an effort to reduce the overall number of fields their users would need to scroll through when crafting a search.  Those fields simply not used were disabled.  Often times that meant "Date Published", "Representative", and "Accession Number" were removed.

Thanks Eric - yep that's definitely a worthwhile objective - & this should also be employed when you have 'retired' a record type with 'x' number of Additional Fields in them. I don't suppose though there is an easy way of checking which are the least-used search methods except via SQL query?

* Does anyone else intentionally  block specific searches?

Search methods get logged in the workgroup server logs if you have "Add user query strings to workgroup server log" enabled in Enterprise Studio - you could extract this info and do some analysis
