love it this is an awesome extension. I'm on 1.9. Works perfect. Get it. September 9, 2014
Exactly what I needed This extension really does what the text promises. It's a great help, thank you. July 27, 2013
Another awesome contribution by Alan Storm! Love it! I still can't get over the fact that you can use it for navigation to products as well. Thanks for this awesome tool. July 3, 2013
Great extension Thank you for this extension. It saves a lot of time. I don't know why its popularity is so low.? July 2, 2013
Flawless integration with 1.7.0.2 This is the best timesaver I've come across - should be in Magento core. Quick and easy install, works like a charm, no matter what language your backend is running. Thanks for the plug Alan! May 5, 2013
Really amazing concept and execution I used this the other day and my mind was blown all over the floor. It's an amazingly simple concept and clean implementation. I have yet to begin to move it into my workflow, but I plan on doing so and heavily promoting it to all Magento admins that I know. It's fantastic, and takes a bit of the pain away from what can usually be a slightly slower-than-desired navigation experience in the Magento admin. March 13, 2013
Some permission problems HI, This tool have a great potential only that you need to handle the permission problem. If you are the admin of the website you can search everything starting from the name of a client to the name of the product or any magento settings. The problem is if you have for example a website manager that do not have all the admin permission. For example I have a role that gives the permission to the user for the clients, products and orders, but when I login with that user in the back-end and I try to search using Pulse Storm after the name of the client I receive Access Denied, also for product name, even if the role allow him to view all that informations. If this can be solved than this is one of the MUST HAVE extension in your website. Thanks for your great work, Marcel February 27, 2013
Thanks Alan, Very useful tool. Dave January 3, 2013
Amazing extension, save lot of time! October 10, 2012
Easy to install, easy to use and great for saving time looking for a specific menu inside the aministration menu of magento backend. Configurable, let's you choose wich action triggers the search box. Once the search box is visible, begin typing and it will do the search job for you on all available items on menus and submenus.

When I log in as my "web user" with limited permissions, the Launcher's search features stop working. If I search for a known product, an empty list is returned. How can I fix this?

Answer: 
The product and order search features of the Pulse Storm Launcher make use of the existing Magento "Global Search" feature. If your user account does not have permission for this ACL permission, you will not be able to use the search features.

To enable this permission, go to

> System -> Permissions -> Roles

and edit your "web user"'s role.

Then, select the Role Resources tab and choose the "Global Search" permission from the tree view. Global Search is a top level permission.

Finally, click the "Save Role" button.

There's a lot of custom code in my Magento system and I don't know if there's any interference.

I first encountered the error once I logged out and logged back in. I installed the extension via Magento Connect. The error is omnipresent it shows up as soon as I log into my Magento System. I'm very grateful for the help and assistance I'm receiving here.

Thank You
