This is where UX is being tasked to fix something that isn't fixable at the UX level. I'd go as far to say this is where a back end system is unfairly asking a user to make decisions that they shouldn't have to. If the issue is that people enter items they sell under a different name than what's already in the system, then the proper solution would be a ...


I would try something like GMail tags. You have a filter and the list of checkboxes inside a scroll area Other good option is something like Pocket Chrome plugin You have a filter and the selected items become a tag


I had to face same problem a few days ago, and came with this solution ! In my cases list weren't that long so I used a tag system so user can have a list of the items that he/she selected.


The problem with drag-and-drop is that you can't be sure about the user recognizing this a functionality. If you provide some kind of "first time tutorial", and the lists tend to fit in the screen, it's the best option.

I have to agree with Micky Duncan : I think searching/grouping/filtering are not at all suited for this task. You don't want to search and select a few items from a big list. You want to select about half of all items on the list. If the user has to select half of the items, the user will want to make sure he has selected all candidates and not missed ...
