Pesky unicode characters. Let’s say you have a Françoise Allègre in your system. Now let’s say you need to call her, so you type “Francoise” into the Action Bar search. Because of the tiny accent at the bottom of the “c”, your CRM On Demand may not find your record. Unfortunately, you’ll end up creating a duplicate.
CRM On Demand’s handling of unicode characters has improved significantly over the past few releases. For instance, you can at least save records with unicode characters in them, and even import and export them while holding on to your special characters. But the exact-matching only feature of the search algorithm leaves no way to find records without using the special characters in the search fields. That’s a waste of time.
