The Global Search bar in our mobile application operates just like it does in our desktop products. It will do partial string searches for you by adding an asterisk to the end of the string you enter. This is automatic in the filter bar of the list views in the mobile product.
There are a number of wildcard characters like this that you can use for manipulating search results.
Using Special Characters and Operators with Search
You can use special characters and operators with your search term. Special characters are a symbol used to replace parts of a search term. Operators are expressions used to manipulate a TRUE/FALSE result of the search.
