Advanced or Multiple Search
#1
Does anyone know how easy it would be to add a custom search option to the API so that users could search by more than one criteria?

Example: Search by field 1 and field 2 but not field 5

or: search by field 1 or field 2

or: search by field 1 and field 2 and field 3 (every field in the form)

etc?

Hey Harmony,

This is a great idea. It's definitely do-able, but it would still take a couple of hours to puzzle through.

The ft_api_show_submissions function which lists submissions from the FT database currently allows a number of different option parameters; it would just be a matter of adding a search option to allow for this.

But I'm afraid it's going to have to wait! I have a lot of other stuff to focus on first.

Sorry, Harmony. Bug me about this again sometime in the future.

I sure could use this kind functionality. I'm currently rolling this out to my users, and it's the first thing they noticed and said was going to be a problem.

Not only would they need to able to say Field A contains "X" AND Field B contains "Y". They would also like to specify value ranges. equal to, less than, greater than, between.

I'd like to see a date filter option for the standard view filter. I would like to filter out results with entires that are prior to current date.
