Search and Create

I ran into one of those hidden feature that every application probably has, but each time I run into one, somehow I still am surprised on how applications can help make the life of users simpler.

I was looking for contacts with the goal of adding them to an account, so I searched for the contact first to check whether or not the contact existed already.

It did not, so I clicked on the create button to create the contact that I wanted to link to the account and that obviously did not existed in the system yet.

And I just noticed for the first time that the fields I used to search for were carried over to the create screen so I did not have to enter those values again.
