In the advanced search function of RM9, I would like to search for text fields (names, event places, event place details etc) which begin with a string that I can input. I get many other options - is/is not blank, does/does not equal, does/does not contain and even (oddly for text) less than/greater than. However, the option for ‘begins with’ is not there.
Forgive me if this has been requested before.
There is a discussion of wildcards in this post, but as noted there, they do not work in the person search. If they did work, I could use equals my string followed by a wildcard, but even if this facility were added, I still think that ‘begins with’ would be easier for many users to use.
