Searching for Contacts by Account Name

Accounts & Contacts

Although the new search/filter capabilities of the Spring '07 Release are great, there is a HUGE flaw. Now when you perform a sidebar or advanced search by Account Name, it will not search the database for Contacts that are associated to the Account. You will only be presented with matching Accounts, Leads, Opportunities and Activities. The only way for you to find Contacts at a particular Account, or across multiple Accounts of the same name, is to use Reports or Views. This is very inefficient for our users. The search capability needs to allow for searching on ALL key fields within the application, and the Account Name our Contacts are associated to should be one of those!
