Advanced Search in MediaPortal [MP OG]

The Advanced Search Functional Use Case Category allows administrators to configure which metadata fields and groups are expressed when selecting the Advanced Search.

Additionally, users can specify which metadata fields are expressed in the Extended Search option in MediaPortal. Users are also able to configure the layout in which metadata fields are presented.
