I'm quite new to SharePoint and hope this is the right place to ask. A through web search could not give me or my colleagues the answer.
We made a new list with information about employees and when they made certain certificates. The users started using the list and searching for people, to find out if they are allowed to do certain things which are only allowed due to the certifications.
When typing only one part of the name, let's say "Smi" out of "Smith" you need to use the Asterisk "*" to get search results.
The problem is with some names, for example "Zimmermann" the search gets results when you only search for "mann". Another Example would be "Eck" instead of "Eckes". In this case "Eck" will already lead to the correct search results.
Can someone please lead me to the right direction why the search only works like this sometimes? Our users are annoyed that sometimes they need to use the Asterisk, sometimes not.
We are a bit restricted, as such we do not have access to CA / Powershell / Designer.
Sorry for my kinda broken englisch.
