Constituent search by email address only searches primary email address

When using the email address field in constituent search, the system only searches the primary email address. If you search using someone's secondary email, their record will not show in the constituent search.
There may be an option marked to only search primary addresses. To check this: 
  1. Click Constituents > Click Constituent Search
  2. Click the Arrow to Show Advanced Search Options
  3. Unmark the checkbox to Only Search Primary Addresses
  4. Enter the email address again in the search
  5. Click the Search button
The constituent should now show in the results.  

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Click Constituents > Click Constituent Search
  2. In the Email Address field, enter a secondary email address for a constituent (any email address that is not marked as primary)
  3. Click Search
  4. Notice the constituent record is not pulled up. This window only searches primary email addresses
