Discrepancies between event searches in Event Functional Area The Event Work Center Event Search uses wildcards automatically and the Event Search does not.
There are multiple event searches within the Events functional area. The 'Find an event' search at the top of the Event page uses wildcards automoatically and that is by design. There are a few searches in the system that were designed with automatic wildcards built into it and 'Find an event' search is one of them. The rationale for this is to provide users with options and multiple ways to search. The Event search that appears under the Event calendar does not use wildcards.
