Searching by Typing?

Recommended Posts

<p>Is it possible to search by typing again? I know there is a search bar at the top, But I liked the old way in that is I typed "john" it will bring me right to all the "John"s without having to press search and can Search again if I want to. </p><p> </p><p>

This new system seems like a bigger time waster than a time saver. </p><p> </p><p>

If it is possible that would be great.</p>

Agreed. I find myself doing it anyway and realizing I need to scroll.


I’m thinking if the search bar is automatically ready for me to type when I get to a screen that has it then the search should be able to register if I type J for John then it should pop me right to the first J name I have. No?
