I'm new BA and I got my first requirement to analyze.
Issue: There are two search fields in my XYZ application; Item and Item Code. You can use either of these 2 fields to get the list of the items you need.
- If Item = A, the item list populates all the items starting with A
- If Item = CO, the item list populates all the items containing CO
- If Item = PIE, it opens the item details of one of the pie items instead of populating a list of items containing pie
What could be the best way to restrict the search and get the most relevant items in the drop down list based on the search criteria? I was thinking to enter at least 3 letter that would populate the items starting with those three letters.
Enter at least 3 letter that would populate the items containing with those three letters.
For critical applications, where you need to display list so that it is not misused by competitors by itendifying the items, what would be the best search option "starts with" or "containing" or any other you guys can suggest.
