    Hi Nathan! Would you typically be searching for a specific value entered into a submission? Would your users searching something configured like submission number or name?

    Hi Ellen!  Our users would just like to search on the text that populates the visible rows in the table on the History tab of GoCanvas Mobile.

    In our case, we have that field configured so that it is made up of our <ticket number>,"-",<ticket date>,"-"<customer name> - But all of that lands in the the Dispatch Description field because of how we have our apps configured.

    I hope that makes sense.

    No answer to this? We have the very same problem, we feel like digging into a big file cabinet every time we need to review a submission over the mobile app.

    I've been asked by my users multiple times if there could be a search option in the mobile app. Most of my users have over 500 submissions, and when they have to look back at the history of what they did to a specific unit/equipment, it's painful scrolling through. It would be really helpful to have the same search functionality as the browser does on the mobile app.

    Yes!   We would also REALLY like to have this feature added.   A search bar on the history page of the app would make a significant difference for us.   

    We spend a LOT of time, scrolling back through the history looking for submissions.   Since the search bar exists on other pages, I'm hoping that it can be added to the history page.

    I am working on a project and the idea of having a search tool for massive amounts of submissions is really needed, I would recommend to have like and advance search so you can search depending on different fields. Please help us in this one.

    Any movement on this?  This continues to cost our users quite a bit of time on a daily basis.

    Desperately need this feature to update submissions. Not sure why at all there is no keyword search capability in the mobile app. Very much needed!!

  • Hi all,

    Thank you very much for your detailed explanations on how this feature would benefit your experience using GoCanvas. We hear you, and this is definitely on our radar! We don't have a timeline to share as of right now, but we appreciate you sharing awesome feedback like this with us. Stay tuned.

    All the best,

    Our users would also like to see this feature.  They are currently copying themselves on the email submissions so that they can search through their mail for reports.  This takes up valuable resources on our mail server for documents that are already stored someplace else.

    A search feature would be a game changer for me. It is very time consuming having to scroll through so many reports trying to locate the right one, viewing it to check last comments and then having to scroll through the list again to find it so I can update/edit it.
