GW 2018 SP1 client, build 129782
Address Book with 50k entries

If I type a full name (John Doe) in the top right corner of the Address Book, then the search expression will be

Find: First Name is '*John*' or Last Name is '*John*' or First Name is '*John Doe*' or Last Name is '*John Doe*' or UserID is '*John Doe*' ...

This expression will find everybody with the name John, and the list will be huge! Yes, John Doe is on the list, but hundred of other Johns are also there. My expected search expression would not contain First Name is '*John*' or Last Name is '*John*'. It would contain First Name is '*John Doe*' or Last Name is '*John Doe*' ...
Or much better I would like to customize the search expression via GWAdmin and set up a default for everyone. One setting cannot be good for small and big installations too. Give the admins (or/and end users) the possibility to customize these small things according the needs.
