Auto-complete for names in registration doesn't work

In documentation is that “The registration app has an auto-complete feature for given and family names. It displays suggestions based on a selected algorithm” but this functionality doesn’t work. Is there an issue covering this bug or should I create a new one?

Thanks Natalia!

In the future please include a link to the documentation where it says so.

I’ve added a missing piece: “The default auto-suggestion works given an administrator entered a list of names under Advanced Administration - Settings - Registrationcore - Given Name Auto Suggest List.” to https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/OpenMRS+2.2

Ok, thank you for information. Regars :smile:

As long as we’re looking at this, can we add a one-liner about what non-default options are available?

Done. It now says

The registration app has an auto-complete feature for given and family names. It displays suggestions based on a selected algorithm. The default auto-suggestion works given an administrator entered a list of names under Advanced Administration - Settings - Registrationcore - Given Name Auto Suggest List. On the same page you can change the default auto-suggestion algorithm by replacing Patient Name Search: registrationcore.BasicPatientNameSearch with registrationcore.NamePhoneticsPatientNameSearch (uses the Name Phonetics module) or registrationcore.ExistingPatientNameSearch (returns suggestions based on patient names that already exist in the db). Developers can also provide a customized algorithm by implementing this interface and creating a named bean.
