Free form searches from Minibases should default to "Contains" NOT "Starts With" -- just like Google and all search engines do.
Free form searches from Minibases should default to "Contains" NOT "Starts With" -- just like Google and all search engines do. (You don't have to type "The" or "A" before a search phrase in Google, for instance... and if you did, you wouldn't know which to do or when it's needed. "Contains" lets you search by any keyword.) This makes it really hard for people to use the minibase search feature, and makes it likely that they don't find what they're looking for.

Most definitely. I would prefer this to be a HIGH PRIORITY issue. We use mini-bases for more than just searching staff and defaulting to "Starts with" creates numerous issues and confusion for our staff.
Let's make this happen - Please!

YES! For the love of Pete, please do this!
