Multiple String searching in filter
Multiple String searching in standard filter.

Today the basic Grid filter for strings can be used to search for 1 or 2 items at best.  It would be great to be able to filter for > 2 items from 1 column at a time.  

A multicheck box filter does not work so well when you have 100k+ items, and the multicheckbox ends up with 1000s of items in it.  A string search is more appropriate for the end user.

Our current grid a user can filter for upwards of 500 strings of text in one column by treating the input as a textarea that is styled to auto-grow and is not resizable.

Thanks for the suggestion, Michael. 

If I understand you correctly, you are requesting a way to build complex filter queries via the filtering UI or the grid. I will pass your feedback to our product team to be taken into account for grid's future development.
