Search field should be cleared when user presses on a different folder

Feature name

  • Search field should be cleared when user presses on a different folder.

Feature function

  • Currently search field is not wiped out, and once you click on a different folder, you don’t understand why the folder is empty. It’s because search field is still at work and is filtering out the results.
  • The benefit of clearing the search field is that additional clarity is added. It’s because when user presses on another folder, he switches contexts, which means any filtering criteria should be reset to initial state.

Example

  • User searches for “gmail” keyword in “All items” folder. Then he remembers that he actually is looking for “outlook” email and clicks on “Outlook” folder. But he sees no entries because results are still filtered by “gmail” keyword.
