My feeling is that Oscar's idea would be really usefull for old and new users.
Very simple case of use (now testing projects/tasks) on Odoo:
I want to look for tasks of a single project.
I need doing this actions on screen:
1. click on combo
2. click on advanced search
3. look for field project
4. assing value on field
Please, no! The focus is on the omnisearch by default, so just type the name of
the project, then go down with the arrows and select the auto-completed
And if the project field was not part of the search view (it is!) you should
add it, not invent a feature to replace this basic setup ;-)
5. If I save filter, value on field is fixed, so
Being able to modify existing filters and existing search facets is a different
feature, and could be done in the omnisearch box as well.
Please do not confuse bad use or bad configuration of the search views with
lack of flexibility or features.
The omnisearch has some limitations that require advanced search (like
specifying date ranges), but in 99% of cases a proper search view will cover
all cases perfectly. Just improve the search view when it's not good enough.
