This post contains minor but nifty tweak to search box in SharePoint list views. Applies to 2013, and Office 365 (for now). Pretty basic stuff, but had to figure this out for a customer so can just as well document it here 🙂
Okay – so a customer needed to be able to filter view items in a SharePoint list by values in a ke
yword-field (managed metadata, with values added by editor users), and wanted to use the SharePoint’s searchbox. The problem was, out of the box this field does not search from “Enterprise Keywords”-field (or any similar field). This searchbox does, however, use search index, so anything that’s there, is also searchable in the view, after a few simple configuration steps.
