Include pick list values in search

Global Search - Desktop

Currently picklists are not included in searcy. In order to include picklist values in the either general or specific text search you need to create a workflow rule or trigger and create a copy of the pick list value in an additional text field so that it is "searchable". It would be very useful if picklist fields could be defined (via a checkbox on setup) as text searchable, and have salesforce automatically include the value in search. For instance if you use a picklist for state codes, users still expect to be able to search for "100 Main" and MA and get results.
