Drop-down search box is redundant

Postby gjsa » 2014-08-17 06:05

Can the drop-down box that appears when searching the reference or knowledge list be replaced with a sub-list in the main list column?

The drop-down box has no functionality. It provides no link to the other panes, and the search results can't be browsed as if they appeared in the main list column.

Restricting the main list column according to the results obtained would provide much better functionality.

For an explanation of what I mean by 'drop-down' box that appears when searching, please see attached image.

Hello gjsa,

Thanks very much for your suggestion! What exactly do you mean by "sub-list"? Do you mean that the search results should automatically be applied as a selection in the list of references?

Best regards,

Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

Yes. In other words, the main reference list could always show what the current selection is, and there is no need for a separate drop-down list to appear which has limited functionality.

So, records would be selected/limited in the reference list using 1. just as in 2:

1. using "go to" to find references by search word(s)

2. using quick select (filters)

Hi gjsa,

Thanks for the clarification! It would make sense to have these two features both apply results the same way.

Best regards,
