I should have been more specific - I’m referring to the search app from the dashboard. But that is a good comparison.
When a search in the search app (web and desktop) is limited to fields with pre-defined options can there be drop menus like the ones for filter or sort criteria?
Any thoughts on this? The situation is a locked view that I hope to use a reference point for users, including a number of ‘keyword’ tags in single and multiple fields to aid search. I’m a newbie here but I understand the filter conditions will off-limits to a locked view, and I’d prefer to send users to the Search App in any case.
The Search app cannot be limited the way you want. This is in part because the Search app is setup for searching across multiple fields. You could limit the search to a single field, but that doesn’t change how the Search app works under the hood.
You could let your users create their own views and set their own filter conditions in their own views.
You could also have a shared view, which allows filtering.
A lot depends on what other features uses need access to and what else users need to be prevented from having access to.
