I read in the Quickbase Help that you are able to search for phrases contained within file attachments. I would like to be able to do this but I cannot find the field that allows me to search. Is this possible and if so, where is the field to search? I do not have any "advanced find/search" fields visible on any table or home page.
According to Intuit; it takes a few hours for file attachments that are uploaded to be "indexed"; and that these types of searches will not work until those file attachments are indexed. I will try again in a few hours to see if the filter finds my test documents and report back - but you are likely seeing the same results I am; no files when searching for files containing phrases because the files are too new to the system.
From any table (not the home page), in the upper right corner you'll see your name and to the left of it you should see "Search". (If you don't see this then it means you don't have access to it, and you'll need to contact your App Administrator.) If you click on "Search" you'll see a box open that says 'Search [Table Name]', click where it says 'Advanced search'. In here you can select the table you want search, then select the name of the file attachment field that you'd like to search in.
Laura is correct in that the files need to be indexed prior to being able to search them.I'm unsure of how long this process normally takes, but in my case they were indexed and ready to search the next day.
Any possibility of having the files indexed in real time? This would be a valuable feature.
Please advise. Thanks.
