    Hi Robin,

    The dropdown is limited, but if you're looking for a specific item you can start typing its name and the dropdown will update as you type.

    Hi Jacquelyn, what if the person who is looking for a specific item doesn't know the name in order to start typing it?

    They would need to know the name of the item in order to search for it.

    Enrique - you can set this in the app template. Check the 2nd "pro tip" in this article for a screenshot and instructions: https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201019288-Relationships

    Thank you Jacquelyn but what you are saying is not logical. Why do they have to search for it then if they know the name? if searching is only used to select the item, then since you know the name, just write it down and it will be selected. what if i had 100 items, do i have to memorize all of them? this does not sound logical at all.

    Hi Jacquelyn,  I also find this very limiting especially on the mobile app here it is only 10 choices. Is there any way around this?  It is a real problem for the people in the field.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Reto,

    You just need to start typing the name of the item you're looking for. We limit the dropdown because scrolling through hundreds or potentially thousands of items would not be a very good experience. How else would you wish for it to work?

    Hi All,

    we do have the same problem. The usecase of a dropdown is to show the user what items can be used! There is no need to know what item the user can find in the list or the way it is written.

    If the user knows what to type, there is no need for a dropdown!

    That is a big problem for the normal use of a dropdownlist.

    Is there any way to work around?

    Thanks.
