This article outlines how to enable the "Search Beginning with" Option in Everest workstation settings for users who want to search a column by entering a string and only displaying results that begin with the search string, rather than find all results containing the search keyword which is the default setting.

Users wishing to change this default behavior and only find items that begin with the search string can enable the "Search Beginning with" Option by following these steps:

  2. Click on General tab > Others sub-tab

Note: There is a known issue with this feature that was fixed in Everest Release 6.36.4 therefore users running older versions are encouraged to upgrade to the latest release.
