Wildcard Filters

When using the Free Test filter its a common requirement to be able to do wildcard searches on SharePoint lists.

Unfortunately SharePoints List View web part doesn't support this but you can get close with a contains search. Thus searching for “Acme” will return “ACME Construction” and “Big ACME Rentals” but not “Rent-A-Crane”

It’s not easy though and does require SharePoint Designer to modify what the List View Web Part will do with the filters it receives from FilterPoint.
