I implemented a new feature - a 'DocumentNo Search'. I added a textfield to the bottom of main window between the ' Expand Tree' checkbox and 'Lookup' field. If the user enters a document number and hits enter it does a search in all tables with a DocumentNo column (hardcoded list) like Invoice, Order, Payment, Movement(Confirm), Ship/Receipt(Confirm) and Physical Inventory. Of course the search is limited to the tables that the actual Role can access.
If a matching record is found the related window with the record is opened (filtered). If the document number is found in more than one table _all_ related windows are opened - not sure if this is the best solution...
Trifon had the idea to allow search entries like inv-123456 to reduce the search to the c_invoice table - I think this is a good idea - what do you think about that?

It would be better if we can have a pop-up window displaying the search result rather than open up all the windows!
or maybe we have just pop-up list that like in the zoom accross toolbar.
Anyway, great idea and great contribution. +1 from me.
Hi Karsten, sounds like a good enhancement.
Correlating this with a recent thread:
I think it would be great to have just one field to drive commands from user - we could use the current Lookup textbox (or rename it for Action).
And define possible "Actions" for that.
Business - would do a search on the menu (current behavior)
/M Business - synonym for the previous
:Code - could launch a "transaction code" like proposed on the other thread
/D 123456 - could do the documentNo search you're proposing
:invcus 123456 - could open invoice customer window with the documentno (supposing invcus is the transaction code for invoice customer)
This way we could implement easily a "Recent Items" window or menu - the recent would just need to save the transaction code and key
What do you think?
is this feature implemented yet? coz i can't find it at Main Menu..
please login as SuperUser/System with role SystemAdministrator and search for 'Search Definition'. There you can define your own search rules. Use the slash (/) to use the search codes e.g. /bp partnername
Best regards, Karsten
thx for the answer, i've tried it and it works great :)
