The quick search tool (Figure 24) allows you to enter all or part of a username into the input field and then press ‘Enter’ or click on the submit button (the magnifying glass). Jet will return a list of users whose usernames match the term you searched on.

The quick-search tool uses wild-card substitution, so that entering a* or adm* or *dmin will all find a user called ‘admin’ (if a user with that name exists).
The quick-search tool can only search on usernames, and uses wild-card substitution, so that entering a* or adm* or *dmin will all find a user called ‘admin’ .
Once the search tool has returned a list of users matching your criteria,
Figure 25: The Results page for a quick search.
click on the username of the user you want to work with to select them for editing. An example search-results page is shown in Figure 25.
This page shows some basic information about each user found in the search – their username, their first and last names, their email address, and whether or not they are currently active. If we now wish to edit (work with) the user ‘balert’, we would click on the highlighted link for this user in the ‘Username’ column.
After this, Jet will assume that ‘balert’ is the user you are editing until you select another user, or logout from Jet. If you are ever in any doubt as to which user you are currently editing, you can find out by looking at the “You are editing” section. This will be displayed towards the top left of the screen, unless your installation of Jet has been modified to appear differently (rebranded). Wherever it appears on the screen, this section will display the words “You are editing” and then the username of the user that you are currently editing. This section is circled in Figure 8, displayed previously.
