Search More Fields in Lookups


Many times we use an auto-numbering convention for naming new custom objects. When the user is creating a lookup relationship to such an object, the only field searched is the "Name" field. Most users search using keywords and not a "random" auto-generated number. 

It would be great if the keyword is searched in all fields added to search layout configuration of the object.
