Along the top, right-hand corner of the Shift4Shop Online Store Manager, you will see a search bar. This is the Admin's global search bar and it can be used to search for either orders, customer records or products.
When typing a customer's name or email address it will return the customer's record (via QuickSeach) and any orders associated to their record. Furthermore, when searching a product keyword, it will return product(s) that share the search phrase.
This search bar is present on every single page of the Online Store Manager and can be used at any time.

Store Admin Search Indexing
Stores with a very large database of orders, customer records, and products may experience slower searches in the Online Store Manager due to the sheer amount of data that the admin needs to search through.
Because of this, your Shift4Shop store has an option in the store settings to index your internal Online Store Manager pages and help make searches more responsive. To enable this setting, use the following steps:
Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager.
Using the left navigation menu, go to Settings > General > Store Settings.
Next, click on the General tab.
Look toward the left side of the page and you will see a checkbox labeled "Store Admin Search Indexing."
Place a mark in the checkbox and click Save at the top right of the page.
Once the setting is saved, click on the Rebuild Index page to manually have the store build the index for internal searches.
