Okta Admin Quick Search Enhancement

For everyone’s awareness Okta released an extremely useful keyboard shortcut (Cntrl + Space) to allow the administrator to search for a user account or application from any Okta admin page.

My operational team commonly uses the features on help desk tickets coming from emails. The default is to create a mailto: hyperlink for any email address (used as our Okta username). When copy and pasted the “Mailto:” portion is also brought over. The time it takes to delete this string is minimal, but adds up over time.

The suggested enhancement would modify the value returned by the field to ignore mailto: at the beginning of the input string.
