    Filter the submission screen using a URL parameter

    Asked by intranet.admin on June 06, 2014 at 04:39 AM

    Is it possible to put a variable (parameter) into the URL of a submission screen so that it appears in the search box to filter the contents ?

    You were referring to the "Search in Submissions" field, right? 

    I don't that's possible as our filtering option works this way, example if you filter an email like test_111@yahoo.com but in your submission data you have other same value as 'test' then even if you filter it like this 'test_111' you will still get the other data that has a value of 'test'.

    I hope that answers your questions. If there's anything else just let us know.

    Can you give us an example parameter please? I doubt that it's not possible, but we can create a feature request to our developers if we know how it works in the current search area.
