All it takes to search org data and get a list of contacts is: -

Line 268 (for me)

$search_obj=array('query' => $this->query,....


array('org', 'Organization Data'),

to the search_obj

Patch here:

From what I have tried, the org_name is not searchable from the persons view.

How can I search by org name in the persons view?

The solution provided for support #102614 may also provide a solution for this request if the org_name is searchable in the persons view

currently you have to find an org, edit it, and go to person's tab to see what persons are linked to it

THEN you have to go to addressbook persons, and search for the individuals listed in the first step

There has got to be a way to streamline this

Could there be links from the orgs person's tabs directly to the edit person screens of the linked people?

and vice versa

The work phone number for an org should be lised under the org entry, but if you want to find the work phone number for a person you have to search for the person, hit edit, go to the orgs tab, find the org name, go back to addressbook, org tabs, search for the org

Before it is suggested, putting the work phone number under the person's tab is counter to the data normalization theory that established the current addressbook. That tab is suitable for the person's work phone extension perhaps, but not the phone number of the organization
