I was wondering what the possibilities are to extend (customize) the "Search Similar Record" feature in efficy.

Is the following possible for example :
- add other fields (including custom fields)
- Combine fields

Does anyone have experience with this.

See screenshot :

Thank you,

Yes it is completly customizable, you have to override the functions "searchsimilar" in \efficy\js\commands\editCmd.js and change/add the delay events line 78 in efficy\js\views\editView.js in the start function.

Carefull, you will have to define new "search" fields in Efficy designer because the field must be selectionnable in the search method of the entity.

And don't forget to create database indexes, name of the index must start with CUSTOM_
