Guidance on Search with Multiple Fields

    Question

  • I am displaying tiles with many pieces of information on them. Each piece of information is bound to a field within my Model. I have added search and the user is happy; however, the user crosses all fields within the Model. The user wants to be able to search by multiple fields.

    For example:

    Currently, using the Search contract, if they search for 'pietrek', any item in the collection that has a field which contains 'pietrek' will be displayed.

    This works fine; however, the user wants to be able to search by multiple fields.

    They want to see all the items in the collection where LastName contains 'pietrek' AND ContractID contains '123'.

    What is the recommended approach to this? Search contract only searches across all fields. I could add filters for each field; however, that doesn't solve the issue where the user wants to see this AND that.
