The search box at the top looks like it should be super powerful - like a google “omnibar”.
However, as far as I can see, it’s super limited.
If I’m on (say) the notes page, and I put some text into it, it does not search all the notes. Instead it sets the filter to %foo%. Not very useful - if I knew what the ID of the item was, I wouldn’t need to search really. Instead the user has to manually fiddle with the filters, know what the correct column is to search on, and know how the % globbing works. Most end users will NOT know all that, and find it quite frustrating. Perhaps each DocType should have a default search column?
Second, if I’m not on a specific page, but on the dashboard, and I enter “XYZ”, where XYZ is perhaps the name of a customer, I’d expect to see everything mentioning XYZ, across all doctypes.
Have I misunderstood something here? If not, I’m afraid the search is quite crippled.
