Here’s a useful fix from 9.0.1 FP9. You can now find your friends (old or new) faster by searching on either their first or last names. You just update the Domino Directory to the 9.0.1 FP9 template and add a notes.ini setting (below). Then you will no longer be frustrated if you can’t find that person from the meeting or hallway when you can’t remember either their first or last names. 😀
Searching by <last name first name> through typeahead or in the ambiguous name dialog, returns the same results as searching by <first name last name>. For example, searching for don smith or smith don returns the same results, including variants such as Donald, Donovan, Smithfield. To enable this feature, upgrade to the pernames.ntf template provided with 9.0.1 FP9 and add the notes.ini setting AllowWildcardLookup=1 to the Notes® 9.0.1 FP9 client.
