Custom Search Engines and Sugar

Question asked by E T on Jul 18, 2017

Browsers such as Chrome and Vivaldi have a really handy feature called Custom Search Engines that allows users to type in a "shortcut" and then search terms that will automatically be searched at a specified site. To take advantage of this feature, you simply have to have a URL that includes the search terms in the URL.

 

I am wondering if it is possible to do so with Sugar. I have figured out a way to sort of do it in Firefox by going to a Sugar search field (e.g., Contact Name Search), right-clicking and hitting "Add shortcut for this search", adding the shortcut (ss), typing ss followed by a search term (e.g., the name of a potential client), and hitting enter. However, that capability doesn't work in other browsers, so I'm wondering if there is a way this can be done or if anyone knows of a way to do so.
