The search function does not "see" important fields sush as brand, category etc. For example, if I search for "pants" there will be no results, even though I have tens of products under the "pants" category, unless the word is included in the meta data. Also for brands. How can we extend the search function to see also these fields?

Use the Search words field or look in the marketplace for search addons.

I would expect that it is fairly simple to extend the fields in which the search function looks.

Use export/ import functionality to add category and brand name to the Search words product field. It will solve your problem
