In an article Search clients by postcode I added to the discussion but realised this would be better raised as a new feature.
@glenn wrote “The indexing that supports postcode searching is based on full post codes. This fits with the use case described in the opening post, where a client provides their postcode as a way to locate issued invoices. We may change this in the future, but it will require a slightly different indexing approach.”
@alan_mcbrien “My suggestion of being able to do part postcode seaching would be useful to produce lists of clients that then could be an aid to a salesforce who do door to door selling. Only a suggestion and not a necessity to the businesses that I am involved with but some of QF users surely would like such a feature”
