Bug Description

Mahara 15.10+

When Mahara has internal search (not Elasticsearch), I can't filter for friends or people just from my institution. The default setting for any user who is in an institution is to only search within that user group first. Only upon changing the context to "everyone" would they be able to search for everyone. Only site admins can search for everyone instantly.

See http://manual.mahara.org/en/15.04/groups/find_friends.html#find-friends for how it worked in Mahara 15.04

Currently, the 15.10 search box does not have the option to filter for the context and only displays users from my own institution. There is no way of finding others.

summary: - Can't filter for just users from institution in search
+ Can't find users from other institutions in search
