Gobal search

I should like a global search. That is; when you are searching, the results will be from all tables, not just the current view.

It’s not the same, but have you tried the assistant?

If you add in all of your Table views to a single Dashboard view, then you can search through all of them at once. I often do this as a Menu view called “Search All”.

That’s an awesome idea.

Thanks, that’s a great idea.

Hi @Marc_Dillon ! Great idea. I’m sure it works well in a variety of contexts but I just tried it in an app with thousands of records in different tables and, in a case like that, it seems to be prohibitively expensive. I couldn’t even get it to run properly in my browser. My app became extremely slow. I wonder if the number of records in the apps in which you have implemented this is in the hundreds rather than thousands.

P.S. It worked . . . it’s just heavy in my app:
