Auto-complete (autocomplete) Should Not Be Enabled

Presently the global search field is suggesting auto-complete (autocomplete) values based on erroneous data which was never entered into that input field.  This is a bug, contrary to the opinions of Support.  This affects any Chrome user, or user with auto-fill enabled.

 

It would be great if a simple HTML attribute could be added to the input tag so auto-complete will be disabled.

 

By simply adding autocomplete="off" to the input tag, the issue will go away.

 

For example, this is what the current search tag looks like:

 

<input id="searchInput" type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Search...">

 

which would become 

 

<input id="searchInput" type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Search..." autocomplete="off">

 

Considering that there is already an auto-complete function built into Acumatica relevant to Acumatica features, this serves no value and only obstructs the application.

 

This shouldn't require a vote.

 

Thanks,

    Thank you, I very much appreciate this acknowledgement.

     
    Somebody should inform support, because they closed my support case and asking me to post a feature request.

    Terry - thank you for reporting this. We created a development request and this has been fixed. We will release the fix in an upcoming build of the product. Since we will handled this via the support process, we marked this idea as rejected.
