Make a MiniBase App Field Searchable

Make a MiniBase App Field Searchable By: Sara Goss

Here’s how you make a field searchable. 

  1. In Site Manager, navigate to the workspace in which the MiniBase is located. 
  2. Edit the MiniBase App. 
  3. Click Options
  4. Navigate to the Fields tab. 
  5. Select a Filter Type.  None Filter Type is the default and it means that field will not be searchable. Free Form Filter type allows a visitor to enter a letter or letters to search for an item. It is useful when you have a lot of data to search. Drop Down Filter Type allows a visitor to choose from a list of items for the search. This type of filter is generally applied when you have a short list of data. 
  6. Once you have selected the Filter Type, you will need to determine the Sort Order. Ascending is lowest to highest or A to Z. Descending is highest to lowest or Z to A.
  7. Next choose a Sort Level of fields in the display. You can have up to four sort levels. Sort level 1 will sort output first by a data field (Primary Sort). Sort level 2 will add a second sort level by a data field (Secondary Sort). Sort levels 3 and 4 will further delineate sorting 
  8. Once finished, click Save
