The Web App's Search Bar Logic

The JobNimbus Web App offers a search bar feature in the top center of the app's page for searching for contacts, jobs, financial records and other documents found within the system. Below, is a general explanation of how the search bar displays its results.


The search bar is capable of searching records within the system by various fields and points of data. Depending on the pre-determined priority of this data, the more a search result appears in these fields, the more likely it will appear at the top of search results. As an example, where the name of a contact appears in the last name, company and display name fields, these would be prioritized higher than a contact in which the name only appears in the last name and display name fields.

A list of the fields the search bar uses when searching for a record appear in descending priority (highest to lowest):

  • Display name
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Company
  • Number
  • Title
  • Description
  • Address line 1

  • Email
  • Home phone
