      1. Add the messages tool to your site
      2. Compose and send a few messages to All Participants
      3. Click on Received - > Advanced Search
      4. Enter something to search on
        • Expected behavior: user remains on advanced search page
        • Current behavior: user is taken to "normal" search page 

      Current behavior:

      1. To clear the advanced search, the user now needs to click Advanced Search again
      2. After clicking to clear the search, the user is again taken to the "normal" search page
      3. To perform another advanced search, the user now needs to click Advanced Search again

      If the user does not find what they want for the first Advanced Search, they may want to try a different Advanced Search. Ideally, they would remain on the Advanced Search page until they choose to leave that page, especially since the search results do show on the Advanced Search page.

      Description

      Not sure if this should be a feature request or a bug, but it is very annoying.

      If the user clicks on Messages - > Received - > Advanced Search and enters something for the advanced search, clicks Search, the results are displayed on the "normal" search page.

      If the user clicks "Advanced Search" again, the current search results are displaying. Now the user can click to clear the search so they can do another advanced search, but after clearing the search, they are returned to the "normal" search page again.

      Now the user needs to click Advanced Search again to try another search.

      It makes more sense to keep the user on the advanced search page when doing an advanced search or clearing an advanced search.
