Allow searching to include items outside of organization but within shared groups

    As of the December 2013 version of ArcGIS Online, when searching from the Home page, the searching does not include those items within shared groups containing content from other organizations. I can however, bring up that group and search within it. As noted by Esri support, "By design, ArcGIS will not allow you to search for contents outside your organization but within a shared group from the home page without signing in."

    This diminished searching ability, greatly detracts from a core themes of ArcGIS Online: searching for content, and needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
