    Ability to create query filters for submissions like "name contains xyz" or "where fields=abc"

    Asked by aminenouira on February 12, 2015 at 03:31 PM
    Hey, I am using the abode CentralFormat and I am thinking about migrating to Jotform. My problem is that I am using a lot the filtering of data in tables such as "name Contains xyz" or rows Where field= x...these options are absent in Jotfrom. So I am wondering when they would be available.

    Thank you for your efforts and good luck

    Hi Amine,

    A number of these filters have already been released. (is, contains, starts with, ends with). If you have a plain text field on your form these filters will be available to you. They will be activated for our special text fields such as email and full name shortly.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hello again,

     

    I am sorry, but I couldn't find these filters. Maybe we are not talking about the same thing. I meant when I want to check my submissions, I would like to use filters besides those related to dates of submissions". I would like for example filter the submissions where job = programmer , I would like to display all rows verifying this condition...If we are talking about the same thing, please tell me where to go to find them. Thank you.

    I took a screenshot of one of my table with Adobe FormsCentral. It shows the filters I am talking about.

    Hi Amine,

    Thank you for sharing more details. Our dev Paul have gotten your message/updates already and will be able to make use of the information also.

    Currently, the filter only involves Date at this time. So, Question and Answer filters is not yet available.

    It was mentioned in the current user guide: -How-To-Use-Visual-Report-Filters

    We will let you know here once we have update on the new filters.

    Thanks.

    Hi Amine,

    It seems we are talking about different things. These extra filters are currently available for visual reports but not for our submissions page or other reports just yet.

    I will investigate the possibility of adding them to other reports and get back to you.

    Alright, thank you Sir for your consideration. Please let me know about anything new about the issue. As far as I am concerned I think these filters are so important and so helpful for every user to treat his submissions. I hope you'lll add these options to your services very soon.

    Thank you.
