[IDEAS] Search field

By João Melo on 17 Feb

I kinda think this is the third or forth time someone creates this exact same idea.

If we had a search field on the Ideas page it might not happen anymore. :o)

Good thing there *is* a search on every screen already! :) And it even searches ideas!


The problem is that no one uses it, not even folks like me know know it is there.

Oh yeah.. I'm aware of the main search in the top of the community's page, but I don't think it's friendly, it's a bit hidden...

I've seen tons of new member's ideas that I've already seen in the past.

That's why I said "search field ON the Ideas page". People would feel invited to search before creating a new idea. 


There are more idea's related to this one, but they keep saying it's possible by narrowing down.

Simulair ideas:

I already added 4 links with this post, but they all combined them together. So maybe now OS can take this idea serious and build a Idea section search!

Good Evert... I hope so! Thanks.

In order to avoid duplicate ideas, could be nice if exist a search feature in the ideas section of the outsystem community


I know that exist one general search in all site. But a dedicated one would be more effective.

Could be nice if in this section (Ideas) we have a search in order we could check if someone have already post one ideia.

The "Search" for the site in the top-right searches Ideas, and lets you filter to see only Ideas as well.

It is currently nearly impossible to see if an idea is already proposed by somebody else. You have to browse through all the ideas.

Add a search bar on top of the Ideas overview page to search for ideas.

Kind regards,

Hi Remco,

To search for ideas, just click on the magnifier on the top menu bar (on this page also), and type your search query.

By default, you get results from all the OutSystems web properties, but you can click on the 'Ideas' button to get results only from Ideas.

E.g. https://www.outsystems.com/community/st_search.aspx?stq=breakpoint&active=ideas&tag=

Hello,

I would like to add a idea but i dont know if it is already reported.

Adding a search by title feature on ideas page would be nice and would avoid adding repeated ideas.

Having the same issue here. I would also suggest a categorization feature.

Yes it's possible to search within the idea section, but again regarding the number of ideas created with this idea it might would be something OS needs to evaluate. Idea's are now combined together but in the end it where all separate ideas:

http://www.outsystems.com/ideas/2778/create-a-search-on-the-ideas-page

------------------------

This one was set as solved but can be evaluated I think:
http://www.outsystems.com/ideas/2342/be-able-to-search-ideas

We could keep the debate of is or not necessarily the existence of a dedicated search functionality to the ideas section. At the end, the fact is that several users claim it. 

Hi all!

The OutSystems Community is faced with a problem of duplicate Ideas. This causes a lot of noise: Discussions get spread over several similar ideas, likes get dispersed, and a lot of effort has to be made by some community members to merge similar ideas.

But very few go through the work of trying to find if their "new" Idea already exists...

And I think this is because searching for an Idea is not that simple. In the page www.outsystems.com/ideas we have some information about Ideas but it's not possible to search for Ideas.

The only way (that I know of) that exists to search for Ideas is using the Global Search in the top menu of the OutSystems pages and then selecting the category Ideas.

Add a search function in the page www.outsystems.com/ideas at the top would certainly make it simpler to search for Ideas and avoid some duplicates, although we would still need the count on with the good will and good behavior of community members.

Cheers,

Tiago Bernardo

It's unfortunate that I got caught with my own problem since the idea already existed... :/

As was said in previous comments, the implementation of this idea would be very helpful!
