I keep hashtags in “NOTES” field of items. for example, I use #lan for all local system’s passwords (192.168.x.x / 10.x.x.x. sites).
From the browser (chrome/edge) addon, when I type “#lan” in the search box, all local system items show up correctly.
However, when I search for “#lan” in mobile apps (Android/iOS), it ends up with “There are no items to list”; if I search for “lan”, the local system items don’t show up either, it seems to me that the search strings don’t apply to mobile apps.
I am kind of confused of searching results with NOTES field. I have an item with NOTES containing “phone: 123”,
. when I search for “phone”, both browser addon and mobile app can’t find the item;
. when I search for "phone: ", the browser addon shows the item, the mobile app can’t find it.
I assume that if I don’t use ‘>’ to invoke full-text search with browser addon, it’s basic search, if I do basic search on both mobile apps and browser addon, how could I get different results ?
I wish that mobile app and browser addon act consistently in “basic search” mode, and I really wish the “basic search” will include NOTES field because it’s the only flexible field for me to input hashtags (obviously I can do this in “login” or “username” fields).
I agree with @El_Topo that Basic Search needs to include or have an option to include the Notes field, or all fields. I’m willing to trade both space and time for an accurate search. If I’m forced to use a mobile device to do the search, it means I probably don’t have access to a computer, and the information I’m looking for most likely is buried in the Notes field of a secure note whose name I cannot remember, and I desperately need to locate it.
