As a user I would like to choose the time fields basic search searches against.
Currently, the basic search expands against 5 time fields. Ideally, the basic search should allow for a drop-down of visible time fields which should be searched, and the default selection should be an admin-configurable mechanism.
For example: Date Revised and Created could be the default fields, all visible date-time fields are shown in the multi-select dropdown. The user can uncheck Date Revised to just do created, or change the selection however they choose when building the dropdown.
This will give the user much better granularity to control what fields they search against.
