    Unfortunately, we don't have a field that you can use for searching purposes.

    We do have the auto complete widget that might provide a similar functionality, but the list for that widget is fixed and you would need to prepopulate it first in order to make it work.

    Hope this helps.
    Let us know if this could work for you.
