Custom Views from Form

I want to allow members of the team to create custom views via a lookup form (without going into the base). For example, see all records that match a given criteria (type: flower, color:red). Is there a way to do this without pre-creating a view?

on a form, user enters type:flower, color:red. It returns a view/table with:

  • record1 - rose
  • record2 - tulip

miniextensions has a search page that does what I am looking for, I assume this is a form on their site that then uses the API to retrieve info from the base, correct?

Correct. I’m not super familiar with the specifics of their system as I’ve only briefly used it once for a client project about a year ago, but all third-party integrated services are using the API to access the data in some fashion.
