Kepler database custom field - is it possible to use wildcards in autocomplete DBCF field?


We have a db custom field set up to return a long string with all the details of our clients data. This way our service desk guys are able to pick a client by typing few letters of any of the details.

However, when a client has multiple branches there is a need to search not only by part of the name but also by city or address.

Is there any way to use wildcards in the autocomplete search? For example typing: companyname*city*street ?

Hi Blazej,

No, there is no support for wildcards in the autocomplete search for a database custom field.

You can only search by exact part of the field value.

Aww, ok. We will then have to figure out some tricks with additional custom fields and dynamic query.

Anyway, thanks for the quick answer, awesome plugins and flawless support :) Kepler rocks ;)
