3 characters not searching in search box

Is there a setting that limits the characters in a search box that initiates the search?

I can’t search ‘YYZ’ for example in a searchbox. I must search CYYZ even though “YYZ” is within CYYZ meaning it should come up.

Why is this happening?

Bubble’s default search matches on whole words, I believe.

There are workarounds for this, but they essentially require you to build your own search field using an input field as the input, a repeating group as this auto-suggest list, etc.

It’s definitely an area where Bubble could improve. For now, if you want something more robust than full work match, then I suggest you search the forum to get more details on the workarounds you can put in place.
