There should be a taskbar in each tab(Activity, Notes, Opportunities, History) that holds individual fields aligned underneath each column and tied to the column corresponding to the column where if I wanted to do a quicksearch on an entry in Notes, Activities etc. it should do a fast search based on whatever keyword I type into any/all search fields. As the words are being typed, it should start doing the lookup without a "GO" button and quickly start limiting the list.
For example, let's suppose I was looking for "service level agreement" and I type it into the input field underneath the "Regarding" Column, as I am typing it it's doing a super fast seach as the words are being typed in. No "Go" button is needed. Please spare us with the unbelievable extra stepped already rooted in this software program. We don't need it.
