I’ve used the search app daily for almost a year, it works fine. Make sure to set it to search all tables.

Please define “globally”.

all records under my account.

So, you want a search feature at the Workspace level, not in a specific base, right?

Yes, and whats the the app name that Tim provided the screenshot with ?

Imagine you perform a search from Base A, it gives you hits in Base B which you select. This closes Base A, opens Base B, displays the table and record you chose, but it’s the wrong record.

What should the UX be now that the original base is closed, and the search hits are no longer visible?

Tim can you please send me the link of this ?

I believe that’s the search block (app).

@Bill.French is correct, that’s the search app. It will let you search every table in your base. Not every base in your workspace.
