Hi,

the search function via the plugin does a nice job. But there could be a small, but important improvement.

As I see so far, the search can be used with "&" and "%" as SQL-statements (maybe more).

1.) In our case we have documents which are named "1&1 Document 123" (e.g.), the part "1&1" is a company name. So we will not be able to search for it.

2.) It's not so easy to tell our clients to work with the SQL-statement "%" (e.g.) as a wildcard.

It would be very nice if you could integrate an option within the search plugin, that solves that problem:

Either using the already existing method, or:

Every single search phrase will automatically be extended by a "%" and be connected with an "and" statement".

So if someone's search looks like:

"1&1 Invoice 62.20" the search string should (could) like:

select... from... where... Fieldname1 = "'1&1'%" and Fieldname2 = "Invoice%" and Fieldname3 = "62.20%" – (just to give you an example...)

That would be very convenient for any user with no SQL-knowledge.

Do you think that could be done without big efforts? We would really need this pretty much on time...

Thanks for your always perfect support!

Best
Stefan

Hi Stefan,
I will consider to add new configure option in Edocman to allow administrator to enable words or phrase searching in next version
Thanks

Maybe you could also add an option to search within the custom fields to... :-)

Hi Stefan,
Actually, it's impossible to search through Custom fields in Edocman system
