The “record picker” allows one to search for and select a record by the primary field only, it seems. I would like to see a true search element that can be configured to search multiple fields, or all fields within the specific view.

Yes, that would be a nice feature to have all throughout Airtable — for example, anywhere a linked record field shows up.
You might want to check out On2Air: Amplify, which lets you create custom interfaces that can search across any field:
Also, if you’re using Airtable’s normal built-in views that come with Airtable, you can use Airtable’s search app. (But apps don’t work within interfaces.)

Would love to see that Feature, I just posted a question about it myself. It’s currently a deal-breaker for me that this is not possible.
But other than that I do like the product.

This would be a really big feature to have added to Interfaces. As its currently designed, it means the search tool is very limited.

10 months on an no full record search in interfaces. Would really love to see this feature! It is preventing us from having one single point for our teams to go to. For now we need to have a 2nd interface page just to search different terms. Being limited to 3 search fields is really limited!

I am struggling to get my boss on board with Airtable. I think a simple “SEARCH ALL FIELDS” filter would solve the issue of simplicity for her. I have created an interface which, visually simplifies things, but she still needs it to search all fields by just typing in the search field, less clicking on filters. PLEASE AIRTABLE, can you add this function?!??!

You can just hit command-F (or control-F on Windows).

In the Interface designer, we now have at least three — and possibly four? — tools for finding records in a grid.
It’s that last one I want to ask about. When I type Cntl-F, the Find in view field adds a little recommendation:
Use advanced search options in the search extension. See screenshot below. This is in a published Interface. But I can’t see a way to get the Search extension to be usable inside an interface. Is this just a glitch that I should report? Or am I missing an important trick here? Would be awfully nice if this actually worked!
