This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Way to Search unconfirmed faces?

It would be great if the results of a text search would include unconfirmed faces. For example; you can search for the (confirmed) name "John". However, since John has been identified by Lightroom with great accuracy it would be great to be able to get the unconfirmed names in the results by searching for "John?". This could be implement easily implemented by actually * tagging * the tentative names with name + "?". The question mark would indicate the name is unconfirmed.

If you want to find all pictures of John, confirmed and unconfirmed, you would search [contains all] "John John?" in the search box.

Hi Dimos! You can probably already do that, but instead of putting a '?' at the end of the dubious name use a number insetad like '99' - then you can search for 'John99'. No need for a change in application code if that works...

I don't think it works that way.  When I try text search on any permutation of "John" it won't pick up the unconfirmed names.
