I've bequeathed most of the roles in our application with dashboards that have their most commonly used Search functions. Who doesn't like a good Search?

But, it would be so nice to make the native Search button atop every Quickbase screen a bit more functional, beyond just searching the current table and a global search. Is there a way to expand combine the Search widgets which can be embedded on a dashboard, with the global Search button? I'm thinking something like a "mega" menu which could include a number of custom search widgets.

Hey Jonathan,



It sounds like you're pretty familiar with the search tools QuickBase offers natively - global search at the top of every screen, search widgets you can add to an app home page, and the search box the appears on table reports. A developer may be able to design a more custom, more robust or flexible search widget than what QuickBase offers natively.

Also if you have a few minutes Jonathan I would appreciate it if you can post to our User Voice forums and talk about some of the specific search features you'd like to see. You can get there by going to My Apps and clicking the orange Feedback tab on the left side.



Thanks,

Brian

Hi Brian, Uservoice is feeling like a bit of a graveyard where good ideas go to be ignored, but I've put it there nonetheless. Thanks.
