Quick question on search in FO 2.x
« on: August 30, 2012, 01:13:06 pm »
Has there been any increase in the number of fields that can be searched for Contacts or other objects? I looked at some bits of the code and didn't see much new, but some of the new stuff may not be in the same places as before

In our 1.7.5 install I managed to add the Contacts object's 'Department' field in the code and in the 'searchable_objects' table so we could search on that field. I need to add some others but I think we'll be upgrading to 2.x before too long so I don't want to go through the trouble if 2.x is better in this regard.

I don't need a detailed list or anything, just a general idea if there are a lot of new searchable fields in 2.x (or if the schema of the search index in 2.x has changed enough that I should wait).

The way Feng Office 2.0 performs search has changed.

I would suggest to aim for migrating and then making the changes.

Also, if you make any improvements to the search or any other functions/features, we would be happy to push them into the core system.
