I am using latest desktop version.
Previously, it were possible to search by Payee Name determine the credits and debits of an account, for example loans account thus determine the existing balances of an individual person. At the moment, it seemingly is impossible to do so, unless you had their name in the description. This is how i was keeping track with staff whom we loan money to.
It were fairly easy as I started by going to the summary page>Loans> search. While this can be easily solved by editing and entering the names in the descriptions, going through 4 years of data is a uphill task.
Pic for attention:
When I search under loans, the payee search Reference Peter Daniels (1) shows no transactions unless I edit the transaction to show Peter Daniel in the Description (2) which i often reserve for writing what the loan was for…
I think we ought to prioritize the Payee as opposed to the description in transactions
