Quick Search box show newest item at top of list


When using the Quick Search box to jump to client/supplier or invoice/estimate the results show the oldest at the top of the list, if the results could be shown with newest at the top this would usually be more relevant.

A/c **451

QuickSearch “blue p”

Estimates - #00007, #00008, #00025, #00032, #00047
Invoices - #000505, #000548, #000582, #000611, #000639


Hi @alan_mcbrien

Thank you for the suggestion! We’ll leave this topic open to see what other interest there is from the community.


No one has shown any interest in this suggestion as yet, but as more invoices are added to a client/supplier the Quick Search box only shows the first 10 items, so it is possible to jump to an old invoice but not to recent invoices.

Would really improve the search box if the newest was at the top.


A further example of the limitation of the “Quick Search” calling the oldest Sales/Purchase reference. The quick search box only shows ten results when searching, e.g. “Electricity” but these are not from the current accounting period, but go back to the oldest. If going via Purchases - Advanced Search in “Description” for electricity there are 83 results.

Please would you look at changing “Quick Search” so that the newest are called rather than the oldest.


Hi @alan_mcbrien

I will pass this feedback onto the development team for you :slight_smile:
