Expand the Quick Search Box to Include Record ID / Link To Parent Fields
I would like to see the ability for the Quick Search Box to also search the Link To Parent values.
During my testing, I've found that the LTP Record ID values are not found when searching. This means I need to include a "duplicate" field in my View to display the same value already displayed in the left column link fields.
Having this search capability means we do not have to have oversized Views with duplicate columns.
I know there are some improvements coming soon for relationship fields, but I do not believe this will impact the search behavior. At this time, the search capabilities do not include fields from related (parent) tables. We'll let you know if this changes with the changes to relationship fields.

This is definitely needed. It is very confusing for the user to use the search a view and think it is not working when it just doesn't search all the fields but it doesn't designate with ones it does search.
Any updates on where this is at in development?

This is a great suggestion! We agree that being able to search on link to parent values would be very useful. Although we don't have a specific timeframe for this feature, it is definitely on our radar. We will be sure to keep you in the loop with any updates. Let us know if you have any further questions or comments.
