Activity search (advanced search) by subject - is exact match only
Searching activity subject (or details) from the advanced search form is set to an exact match (=). This seems less than ideal as most of the time you won't know the exact subject or details. While you can add the wildcard % characters to search, the standalone activity search form operates as you'd expect using the LIKE term.
Can the advanced search (activities section) be made to match this behavior?
Here's a detailed breakdown verified on the demo site:
- Run an Advanced search for an activity that contains "Tell a Friend" in the subject line - no results.
- Run a standalone activity search (Search > Find Activities) 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 details or both.
Here is the on-screen feedback for the search results:
No matches found for: Activity targeted to ...AND... Activity Text (Subject Only) = 'Tell a Friend' ...AND... Activity Status In Completed
Activity targeted to ...AND... Activity Text (Subject Only) Like '%Tell a Friend%' ...AND... Activity Status In Completed
