Wondering if anyone else is having issues with a Dynamic view only being able to search fields that is current on a view in Dynamic View. IE, if line 1 has "Michael 1234", and you scroll down so "Michael 1234" is no longer in view, a Ctrl F does not find that row/cell. Wondering if anyone else has this issue; and if there is a work around that anyone can share.

    There is currently no search functionality within Dynamic View above and beyond CTRL + F which, as you state, only shows visible fields on the screen. Smartsheet have previously stated the below, which is a workaround:

    "You may try using the View Filter on the View Display page of your Dynamic View configuration. We briefly touch on the feature here  https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/2478391-dynamic-view-create-administrate-views

    "In the View filter section, you can select a dropdown or symbol column to allow anyone who will have access to the view to apply a quick filter based on that column."

    So, as long as your columns containing the program, client or product numbers are a dropdown column AND your Dynamic View is built with a sheet as the source, you should be able create a filter to accomplish your goal. Unfortunately, views with a report as your source do not fully support filters at this time. This is something we are looking into improving in the future."
