Is there a way to Filter records within the Grid view based on a search within the table itself? In the same way that ‘Find Mode’ allows this in FileMaker with Command-F.

Thank you!

Welcome to the community, @G_Brown!

As far as I know, I am the world’s only Claris FileMaker Pro expert and expert Airtable consultant.

What specific feature of FileMaker’s command-F are you looking for?

In Airtable:

  1. Airtable uses filters to perform finds.
  2. You can create different views to “save” different finds.
  3. You can also press command-F in Airtable to highlight a matching phrase on your screen, but only if it currently appears somewhere on your screen.
  4. Be careful: Airtable’s “is” filter is case sensitive, while FileMaker is not case sensitive unless you tell it to be.

If you need help switching your business from FileMaker to Airtable, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable Consultant — ScottWorld.
