How to Search a Submission from the Submissions Page

November 4, 2021

Almost everyone is familiar with the search bar. Whether you’re using Google, Bing, or just browsing a random website, you use the search bar to find results using a keyword (or a search query).

Jotform Tables also includes this nifty feature, so you can search for specific submissions. Here are some examples:

  • You’re looking for submissions sent by someone named John Smith.
  • You want to find submissions that were sent on a specific date.
  • You want to display submissions from people who answered Yes to a particular survey question.

How can you do this? It’s simple. Open Jotform Tables, and type your search query into the search bar or use the filter to filter submissions based on a date or a particular answer.

Did you know that you can create a new tab from your filtered submissions with Jotform Tables? Once the filter is set, click the Create a New Tab button.
