I am finding the search “Glass” in the app does not return results I would expect.

If I have a 2 column view, col1 is text identifier, and col2 is description, is seems the search only finds hits in col2.

Not very reliable or consistent.

Is there an explanation on how the search works, across which displayed columns, and the impacts of text vs numbers?

Just trying to figure out how useful this is.

Have you chosen the option “searchable” for both columns?


@Aleksi_Alkio - wow.

Thanks for the patience Aleksi.

I will check that but you are probably right.

I have to get used to the fact that appsheet is extremely configurable.

I guess I was assuming search was enabled for keys by default…


@Aleksi_Alkio You are right again.

Looks like when you manually define a key field, the “search” option is by default not “ticked”.

Would be great to have keys default to Y.
