Search for Items in WorkApps

I have created a WorkApp. Inside that app there is a report with a large list of projects. This is working well, except for the fact that my department employees are unable to quickly find specific projects. Is there no search capability inside of WorkApps? All I seem to be able to do is bring up a Find and Replace menu, but I can't seem to find how to search for and go to a specific project, or to a specific anything.

    Hi @Adam Celaya

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You should be able to search in the Find / Replace window. Doesn't that work?

    Pro-tip: Select the column(s) that you want to search to limit the range.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

  • Yes, that works. Not sure how I missed that. Thank you. Can I ask a follow up? Is there a way to allow people to sort a column within that WorkApps report, so that they can better search and find what they are looking for?

    Excellent!

    You're more than welcome!

    Easy to miss!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to sort in WorkApps, but it's an excellent idea!
