Better and preferably Superior search Functionality
Search functionality stinks. The search in the top right window would be better as a catch all. If I type in a name that has a middle initial it will not show up: IE type in John Smith and if the individual has a middle initial IE John K. Smith, he will not propagate; this is a must fix/must get it right in my opinion. Not locating contacts is a non-starter. You should also not have to go to an advanced search function in this situation. This seems to be market standard on every other contact list I have ever seen.

People have been complaining about search functionality since 2013! WTF! Fix this @nimble!!!
Not sure why a ton of users have not voted on this - oh wait, the voting is closed??
The search functionality on Nimble is absolutely horrid! It's extremely frustrating when you're on a call and can't find something quickly because you have a letter or spacing wrong. This again, like many other seemingly no brainer functionality is lacking in nimble. Why do other features take development priority when existing functionality is not perfected. The product team at Nimble are clearly not users. For example, why do companies not auto populate in the new Chrome contacts widget?? Sort of eliminates the benefit when you have to go back into Nimble to see if a company already exists and to find out exactly how it is written before you can create a new contact using the widget. Another example is "adding a deal" on a contact (existing deal). They are not auto recognized either and you have to go to the actual deal and remember the name of the person to add. Who thinks through this basic functionality at Nimble...I'm guessing engineers without use cases

I completely agree!
I have a contact, "Stephen A. Malley," where the first name is "Stephen A." (WHY doesn't Nimble have prefix, middle name, last name, suffix anyhow?) and last is "Malley." But when I search for "Stephen" it doesn't match! This makes no sense!
First of all, it should match on a partial, like typing "Stephen" should match "Stephen A." as well as "Stephenie."
Second, you need more name fields. Consider how is Nimble going to store "Mr. Stephen A. Mallie, Esq."? It ends up jamming inappropriate things into a single field.

Additionally the search appears to be linear. IE for a company if I do not enter it exactly correct it does not propagate. Another non-starter. Preferably, I believe a market standard, as I type in search functionality Nimble is propagating choices. Not I enter a company without the exact way it is entered into my info and then I get nothing. For example, If i enter Disn at that juncture my Disney contacts should appear. If I have Disney and currently enter Disn and hit search I would get no matches; there is nothing advanced about this type of search functionality. Just saying.
