The Quick Search dialog can be used throughout the system by selecting the Quick Search menu item under the Tools menu in the Main Window. In the My Specimens manager and Locations manager, it can also be accessed by clicking on the magnifying glass on the Toolbar. In the Reports manager, there is a Quick Search button on the right panel.
A checkbox is available on the Quick Search tab of the user profile to select whether Quick Searches should include Subject level information or not. If the preference is set to not include Subject level fields, searches may return faster.
This checkbox is selected by default to improve speed performance. In order to return results when searching on subject data, users should uncheck this checkbox. These search settings will apply to the keyword search and subject field searches within the Quick Search dialog. When only searching on Subject ID the checkbox can remain selected.
