    Search function on Android app is returning empty results

    Asked by esdexo on March 21, 2015 at 01:10 PM

    The Search Field on the Android mobile app doesn't really work. I've entered a person's name or even a field name and it returns 0 results even though it's in the list.

    Hi esdexo,

    I do apologize for the issue that you are experiencing with the Android application.

    When searching your submissions, you would not be able to search using the field names but using the information within the submission data.

    Can you advise us of the form(s) that you are experiencing the issue with, so that we can look it this further?

    Is there a specific search field/phrase that you are experiencing an issue with

    Thank you.

    The link Bjoanna's response redirects to my forms page and not a thread. I'd like to know why the Android App search function does not work as well.

    The thread is private and the issue is not yet fixed.

    However, I moved your question to a separate thread here https://www.jotform.com/answers/1112646 and escalated it to our devs too. 

    Once this issue is resolved, we'll let you know on your thread and this thread.
