This week SugarCRM Gold Partner EnableIT SugarUK‘s Mike Gee gives details of how you can enhance the search capabilities of SugarCRM from an end-user perspective.
Normally, when performing a search for the text you have entered in SugarCRM, the system by default will look for that text at the start of the field. Using the wild card, the percent symbol (%), at the beginning of your text will make SugarCRM search for that piece of text anywhere within the whole field.
Entering ‘mor‘ in the search field would give results such as Morgan, Morris and Mortimer
Entering ‘%mor‘ would also include Claymore, Humorous and Immoral in the results.
The wild card can also be used in the Global Search box (top right of your Sugar window) to search for the string in any of the selected modules.This tip was originally posted on the SugarUK Blogs where you can find a whole host of other useful SugarCRM tips.
