Adding Additional Search Attributes to Lookup

First off - this solution is very robust and very easy to use. Great work - very impressive!

Is there a way to specify an associated attribute to use to search on a lookup field in the grid? For example, if a child entity of 'Contact' has an attribute that is a lookup - how do you specify including another 'Contact' attribute as part of the lookup scope?
I would like to search either by Name or Social Insurance Number, or any other attribute associated to a lookup record.

Thank you for your kind words.

Currently, the grid doesn't support searching/filtering using linked entities. I will add this feature to the next release.

Hi MH,

Fantastic work on this solution - again very impressive.

Do you know if the above functionality has been implemented in the current solution, with regards to the ability to search using another attribute of the entity on a lookup?

Hi Wayne,

Unfortunately, not in the current solution. This feature proved to be a bit tricky, requiring more time and testing. But I will do my best to include it in the next release.

Sometimes I wish we had 40 hours in a day!

Thank you,
