B.R. Icon About Searching

Searching limits the set of people displayed in the reminder table. Currently, searches are done within the first name, last name, e-mail addresses and note fields of records in your address book.

To search the people in your reminder table, type in space separated strings in the 'Search:' field. The search automatically limits the list as you type. See the Search Logic section for more information on searching.

Table 1: Search string examples. Searches are always case insensitive. That is, a search for "joe" is the same as a search for "Joe" or "JoE".
Search String Explaination
joe Finds all records in your address book that contain the substring "joe" in one of the search fields.
Schmoe Doe Finds all records in your address book that contain the substring "Schmoe" or the substring "Doe" in one of the search fields.

Useful if you want to find all records for a group of last names. You could, for example, find all family records in your address book by entering all last names.

Note that only those people that are currently listed in your reminder table are exported to iCal. This allows you to:
