Search by phone or address in awesome bar

I really need a way to search contacts and customers by phone number and address. I have added phone and address to the contacts-customize form-search field, and it still does not work. Is this a known issue? If so, are there steps being taken to rectify?

Hi @vpops,

Search Fields in Customize form works for Link Fields. And Awesome bar can search the doctype by Documents ID / docname

Thanks, Makarand

Thank you for the quick response!

Is there a way to do what I need it to do?

Looks like I will have to create a filter each time to do it. I do not think the awesome bar can handle that task.


you can modify the awesome bar as per requirement, but in that case you will need to make changes in awesome_bar.js which is not advisable as it may cause the problem in updates.

anyway, you can check the in operator functionality in awsome_bar.js here likewise you can write your own function to search by any phone, address or any field using awesome bar.

Thanks, Makarand
