Model Driven View Search problem

Hi, I have a model-driven power app view shown as below:

I want to search on a Person name, If I type A. then, I get the below:

But If I search on Dat, then it is blank:

What makes me confuse is that, since when I search on A, I'm assuming it is a fuzzy-like search, then it should also work if I search on Dat as well. 

 

What I want is the same result as the second screen but I can't.  How to solve it?

Re: Model Driven View Search problem

@password - The view-level record searching (as opposed to the Relevance Search), has a few quirky things to keep in mind. The search field you are using is leveraging a "Quick Find View". If you navigate to the maker site (https://make.powerapps.com) and pick the Account entity, and then choose Views. You will see an option called "Quick Find View". Here you can pick and choose which columns are searched after entering a search term.

Another thing to keep in mind is Wildcards. You can use wildcards to define what data you are looking for within the view/list.

NOTE: I realize the above links reference Dynamics 365, but Dynamics 365 is a model-driven first-party app. So there is a lot of overlap.

Re: Model Driven View Search problem

Hi, Thanks for the quick response, I tried the wild card, change Dat tot *Dat*, and it works as expected!

One more question I get is Full-text quick find, following the "Search within" example from this page:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customerengagement/on-premises/basics/search-records

I tried to search for "Power Light" I'm expecting City Power & Light comes back based on the "Search within" example but still it is empty, How to turn on the Search within function?

Re: Model Driven View Search problem

@password - Sorry for the long-delayed response. To answer you question: Be sure your search does not have quotes at the beginning or end. If you just type Public Light in the Relevance Search, it will search for all records with the word Public and the word Light as separate terms.

 

For example, if you have an account named "Public Library" and another account named "Lighthouse Publishing", then both records will be returned with the each search term word highlighted in bold as I illustrated in the prior sentence.
