Right now the search is pretty basic, as well as inefficient performance wise. Index the vault with a search utility like Lunr.js , which would also offer more complex search queries such as “search notes for” and “search by wildcard”, etc.
Excellent. Regex search criteria wouldn’t be bad to add to this too, if you don’t mind.
I don’t think you’re a Windows user, but there’s a freeware called “Everything” from voidtools that allows you to search anything on your computer with a lot of search criteria. I recommend you to take a look on it if you want to know more about these features.
I use it very often, and it’s pretty handy to handle bulk files and other things.
It doesn’t look up inside text documents and files, but finding by name is already a good feature.
In addtion to your feature, searching within notes texts would be certainly a good idea. I use that on LastPass too.
Side note: I didn’t migrate from LP just yet for some issues, but I’ll do very soon as long as BW improves features, which I’m placing high bets that it will overcome many other password managers easily.
I also request support for searching through the notes field. I used to store a lot of searchable text, like tags or alternative names for a service in this field on LastPass and simply can’t switch to bitwarden, until this is also possible here.
Also searching in passwords would be useful:
I (and I assume many others) used the same password for many websites in the past. It would be useful to search for “old” passwords (or parts of passwords) that appear in multiple entries, to see what sites use the same password. This would help in changing all obsolete passwords with new random passwords.
LP has a nice special feature for this, I think called “security check” or similar. It will find entries with duplicate passwords, and also any inherently insecure ones. Would be a good addition to BW.
I would like to express my vote on this as well. We moved lots and lots of different items into BitWarden and my corworkers started to complain almost on a daily basis, that they now need additional time to actually find the item they search for.
At the moment, we use a naming scheme like this for our items in the collections:
