Add search option to SharePoint Lists (instead of Filter)
Lists have two options: search through the entire SharePoint repository or Filter a column. I absolutely need a search option within a list to better query results on one page. This is especially true when you don't know the column in which the data resides.

Agreed, and when you are using the search box at the top to search the contents of a list, the experience does not work as expected. I would expect that if I enter one word or phrase, search would return all items that the word appears in (whether it's the title or a keyword, etc)...but that does not happen. I have a column for inventory numbers. Entering an inventory number in the search box returns NO results, even when I see there is one with that number.
