I noticed something today that I didn't expect. A search on clientCorporation.name for "Bob Smith"
Code: Select all
Will return companies such as
Bob Smith Ltd
Bob Smith Corp
where I would have expected a direct match.
Is this expected behavior? Does this matching apply to all fields (including candidate emails which is what I use to look up candidate info)?

Yes, because you have searched for "Bob Smith," your results will be any clientCorporation with "Bob," a space," and "Smith" in the name. It doesn't exclude results with additional words before or after the quotes. This is how the search function works inside of the application.
When searching for email addresses, this wouldn't be an issue, as an email address is generally a unique identifier with no spaces. If you were to search for "firstname.lastname@example.org
," then your results would include only "email@example.com
