Fuzzy search

Fuzzy search returns a list of values which may not be identical to the search input.

Fuzzy search is similar to a text search, with the difference that it compares and sorts all field values according to their degree of resemblance to the search string. Fuzzy search is especially useful when items may be misspelled. Fuzzy search can also help you find multiple values that are nearly identical.

Fuzzy search

Example of a fuzzy search. In this particular case, the search is for 'beast company', and the search is able to return similar, but not identical, values such as 'best company' and 'Neat ABC Company.'
