I want to search people on my people page in admin. I searched around and found this great plugin :-

User search to People Admin - This helps me search user through their email, usernames perfectly.

The only problem is that I want to search users through additional User fields I added later into the admin. As an example, each person has a Full Name as a custom field but this module is unable to search through it.

Any idea how I can achieve that?

I recommend using Views. With this you can create a searchable, sortable and filterable display using any format you desire, and including any fields you want.

You need Views if

You like the default front page view, but you find you want to sort it differently. You like the default taxonomy/term view, but you find you want to sort it differently; for example, alphabetically. You use /tracker, but you want to restrict it to posts of a certain type. You like the idea of the 'article' module, but it doesn't display articles the way you like. You want a way to display a block with the 5 most recent posts of some particular type. You want to provide 'unread forum posts'. You want a monthly archive similar to the typical Movable Type/Wordpress archives that displays a link to the in the form of "Month, YYYY (X)" where X is the number of posts that month, and displays them in a block. The links lead to a simple list of posts for that month. Views can do a lot more than that, but those are some of the obvious uses of Views.
