Search improvement (Team & Games) (future enhancement for developers)

I would like to see improved search functionality, especially in Team Manager.
Being only able to search the beginning letters of a team is not very useful.
We face a bunch of teams that precede their "team name" with their current club affiliate or sponsor.

i.e. As it stands now, if I want to search for the "Sluggers". I have to either scroll through all the teams that I have stored to find them, or I have to remember that the last time we played them they were saved as the Easton Elite 12AA Sluggers.

Apple, IOS devices have a search bar field in team manager and player manager

On iPads, in team manager 'search field' is above "create new team".. in player manager it is above "create new player" .. Look again and see if that satisfies your team search needs.

This search feature is not in game manager and not in Android devices

Player search works fine.
The team search bar does not.
If you have a team named Texas Rangers and type Rangers in the “search” bar, nothing comes up.
Try it.

Ah, i see the issue/opportunity,

The search bar is searching on the first word in the name field. (Example 'Easton', in 'Easton Elite 12AA sluggers', and 'Texas' in 'Texas Rangers AL 2017'). you want the search bar to parse the team name field into seperate words and search on all words in field ( eg Easton, Sluggers, Elite, 12AA, Rangers,AL, 2017, Texas).

As Developers appear to be using Apples built in search tool, developers will have to respond if that is set by Apple or configurable by developers . I assume configurable and if so developers can add to their list for future enhancement consideration.

( player manager operates the same way, it just has two fields first and last name fields. if you have a player w/ first name -Bubba Joe and last name -Smith Jr. Bubba and Smith are found in search but not Joe or Jr. Interestingly, The apple search bar in phone Contacts is configured to return against all words Bubba Joe smith and Jr... so i assume this could be changed in iscore too.)

This is a change we can make and will add it in a future update. Thank you for the suggestion.
