We are excited to announce another new feature in Membee that was inspired by the feedback of Membee's growing user base.
Over the past couple of weeks, Membee's development team has been hard at work developing a simple new way to search for People and Organizations in Membee. It's called Quick Search. The new function is basically a keyword search of the text that's contained in the names of all of the People and Organizations in your copy of Membee.
The new Quick Search function is best used when you know at least a part of the name (of either a person or company/organization) that you are looking for. When you need to search for other items like address, city, email, etc., the main pop-up search function is still available.
The Quick Search function starts finding results as soon as you stop typing a word (or at least 3 characters of a word). The results that match the word(s) you typed will appear below the search box. Sometimes it will take a couple of seconds for results to come up. If no results come up, Membee did not find any matches. To choose a result and open that person or organization record, either click the down arrow on your keyboard and hit "enter" on the appropriate name or move your mouse over the name and click on it (see below).
We Look Forward to Hearing Your Feedback
We hope you enjoy the new Quick Search function. We plan to roll it out to the Events, Committees and Directories sections of Membee over the coming weeks, so we're eager to hear your feedback. Please let us know what you think by submitting a comment below or by submitting a support ticket using the Membee Support Website (Membee username and password required).
Love, Love, Love this new feature….speeds everything up, thank you!
Really like the new feature, instant info with minimal clicks. One thing overlooked though – when you are in a panel further down the Profile tab, anytime you are entering info inside that panel and are needing to stay inside the panel to complete the task, i.e. choosing a status where you are taken to another small window, when you come back and expecting to still be in the panel, you are brought back to the top of the screen to the Quick Search field. This is quite frustrating to have to scroll back down to enter more info. Before… Read more »
It is very handy, but has one glitch – it makes the screen revert to the top of the page every single time you do anything. So, if you’re working in Profile Information, for instance, and enter an item, it bounces back to the top and you have to scroll down to the Profile Info to enter the next item. Etc.
Hello Folks, Thanks very much for the comments. I’m glad to hear that the new function is coming in handy! We are working right now to revise the item noted in a couple of the comments on this page that causes the cursor to move to the quick search when the people and organizations screen is refreshed. It will be corrected in our next build, which is at most two weeks away. We’re also working on a couple of other minor tweaks that have been suggested by the first group of Quick Search users. Thanks for all of the feedback… Read more »
