Searching activity subject and details operates differently in 'Advanced Search' and 'Find Activities'
I've verified the following behavior of the demo site (5.8):
- Run an Advanced Search for an activity that contains "Tell a Friend" in the subject line - no results.
- Run an activity search for an activity that contains "Tell a Friend" in the subject line - returns all the activities that subject line contains the search term, including "Subject for Tell a Friend".
- Same problem when you search only details or both. I can see the following in feedback for the search results:
On the advanced Search Screen:
No matches found for: Activity targeted to ...AND... Activity Text (Subject Only) = 'Tell a Friend' ...AND... Activity Status In Completed
On the Find Activies Screen:
Activity targeted to ...AND... Activity Text (Subject Only) Like '%Tell a Friend%' ...AND... Activity Status In Completed
Can the advanced search screen mirror what the Find Activies search is doing, using the "like" term by default rather than the "=" term? So the search screen wils be consistent and users don't need to use wildcards.
I did also write this up on StackExchange:https://civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/26916/activity-search-by-subject-advanced-search-vs-activity-search
