Searching Smart with Global Search

The new global search feature is really smart. It may look like a simple search field, but we have now implemented an advanced search algorithm that makes it possible to search everywhere inside the CRM software database.

A preview of the search results, sorted by relevance, appears as you type the search term into the inconspicuous looking search box. You can then further filter results by selecting to view only those items inside your opportunities, leads, accounts, contacts, documents, or activities. How smart is that?
