I have not configured the search but I need to change it (perhaps understand more about it). The users are imported from AD in User Profile Service Application.
We use the people search as a directory to locate staff, phone numbers etc.
The issue is that when I run searches for the name Peter - if I type in "Pet" the first three characters of the name it does not return any staff named Peter (and yes - many staff by this name) but does return a staff member named "Pat".
I am not sure why it does this for starters - but I would like to change it so that it does return the results for staff by using the method of typing in the first few characters of a name.
