Showcase - search / filter

Explorer | Level 3

Is there any way you can add a search/filter box to a showcase? 

When I have multiple files added to a Showcase I want clients to be able to do a keyword search on the file name / title content? 

On the following page under 'Five: Harness real-time feedback' it looks like there is a filter dropdown?

Am I missing something?

Hello @diranne. Welcome to Dropbox Community!

I really like your first thread and the screenshots you added. slightly smiling face

Even though the receivers of your Showcase have no search bar in the Showcase they are viewing. If they have Dropbox accounts and the Showcase feature, they can search for the file name in their general showcase tab: https://showcase.dropbox.com/showcases

If they don't have a Dropbox account they will not be able to search for the names of the files via Dropbox. But ctrl+F should still allow these users to search and find what they need. winking face

I would be happy to answer any questions. Thank you!

Sadly the search for a file name in the general showcase will 'hightlight' the showcase where the file lives but when you then open the showcase it does not open to the file location within the showcase. So ultimetly you have to then use Ctrl-F to find the file.

Sure there should be some sort of search function?

Just the one in your general Showcase page for now and the ctrl+F @diranne

Thank you for letting us know it would be helpful to have a search for files in your Showcase presentations. dividers 

Hope I see you in another Community thread. Have a nice week!
