Thanks David,

We'll add that one as well.  We've recently moved all our search infrastructure so can start accommodating more fields and offering e.g.. full text and facets.
That was not possible before.

Tim, if you offer particular fields to be searchable, there is a pretty old request for StateProvince to be used for filtering:


There are some duplicated issues reporting the same need since year 2009.

This will be very useful for geographical filtering within some countries where nearly all provided values for this field are pretty standardized.

Maybe it's time to do it?

Hi Alex,

We can add the protocol in the next iteration.  Any other fields you have particular interest in?

All the best,
