How to Search a Submission from the Submissions Page

How to Search a Submission from the Submissions Page

Almost everyone is familiar with a Search Bar. Whether you're using Google, Bing, or just browsing some random website, you always use this to filter out results using a keyword (or a search query).

On your Submissions Page, you also have this nifty feature so you can search for specific submissions. For example:

🔘 You're looking for submissions sent by someone named John Smith

🔘 Filter out submissions that were sent from a specific IP address

🔘 Or just display those who answered Yes on a particular survey question

Using John Smith, an IP address, or Yes as your search keyword would fulfill the search queries above.

So, how can you do this exactly? Simple - Just go to the Submissions Page and scroll all the way down to the bottom. There, you will see the Search in Submissions bar where you can type in your search query.

    Hi, I'd like to know if I can search submissions by tags. I've seen there is an option in the advanced search to use this as a filter. But I need to know how to seach all submissions with a particular tag. Please assist.

    Hi, also having a problem with search, it's not finding any record for names that I know exist in the list. Does search work for forms with encryption?

    HI, My "Search in Submissions" has stopped working? I am typing in the surname of several people I know have a submission in the system and it is displaying nothing for each of them.

    Is this due to the change in year? is there a date setting I need to change? It says to check Time Frame. Where do I find this?
