The Web App's Search Bar Logic

Overview:
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.

Logic:

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
  • Address line 2
  • Email
  • Home phone
  • Work phone
  • Mobile phone
  • Fax number
