Improvement

Publication date: August 10, 2018

Dear Sir or Madam:

First, I wanted to thank you for making the improvement regarding the search function. Hitting “enter” instead of the search button has made things much easier. Thank you.

Second, I was curious if another improvement could be made. I notice that the search function is pretty much limited to a cell by cell search of the document. If I wanted to search for all “Florida” cases and within that subset look for all “drugs” cases, as far as I know, this is not currently possible. Is it possible to improve the search function to allow for searching two separate columns for key words?

Thank you in advance for any help you might lend me.

Regards,
s.matt

"Back" button and other issue

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Hello MTH,

One persistent bug that I have encountered is with the “back” button. To recreate the issue, go to our database and enter the search term “Florida.” The second entry (at least in this moment) is Yoanly Savon. Click on the #2 on the far left. After going to the page, then click “back.” The page that you return to is the original home page, not the “Florida” search results. Is it possible to rectify this?

The other issue is more straight forward. When I enter a search term like “Florida,” I’d like to be able to hit “enter” and see the results, but the program necessitates hitting the “Search!” button. Can this feature be added?

Thank you for all of your help.

Regards,

RE: Duplicate entries in database

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am finding duplicate entries in my database after entering a search term. To recreate the issue, set your search for “ALL” “like” “drugs” in the three search lines. Hit enter. You should see 657 rulings.

I transcribed all of the rulings into an excel file and have been finding dozens of duplicates. What I’m noticing is that anything above 500 tends to be a duplicate. I have confirmed that I have not accidentally entered the information twice (though I’m sure this is still a possibility, generally speaking). The database itself is reporting duplicates after a search.

For example, ruling #39 (of 657) and ruling #514 (of 657) are the same. I’ve confirmed that this ruling is listed a single time in the database, but it shows up twice in the list when I enter the above search terms.

Can you help me out with this?

Thank you,

Reports of specific records can't seem to be used as data sources for charts

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Hi,

I’m attempting to use a report of a database that was through specific search, meaning I only have a few of the total entries that are in the full database actually in the report. When I attempt to use the report as the data source in a chart, however, I get no bars in the bar graphs, also no lines in the line graphs above 0, either. Still, when I use the entire database for that same specific form as the data source, it will show the graphs correctly each time.

Any thoughts on this issue I’m having?

Search Form

Publication date: August 14, 2018

I want to make a form that I would integrate into a web page that would ask for a last name and then list records showing that last name in my dataset.

I can see how to make a search report that has the specific terms I set for a search, but I want one that allows the user to fill in a search item.

Is it able to search using the system generated updated or created timestamp as criteria?

Publication date: August 14, 2018

We can configure to show these fields in the table, but in the search panel, we can’t use these fields as search criteria.
More often than not, we want to utilize these timestamps to find out the freshly updated/inserted records, instead of using a date/time input field, which can be wrongly set by the user.

Search Zip Database

Hi, I am looking for away to search an business contact database to return all the businesses in my database within a specific radius of a zip code. Can Mytaskhelper do that?

form with a search button

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Does MTH have the capability to create a form with a search button that makes a results page appear when search button is clicked?

In other words, would the example below be possible?

Could I upload an excel file of family names and addresses. Then make a form that has a text field and a button. The text field is for the user to type in a family name. The button is a search button. Once the button is clicked, a results page appears with family name and address (from the excel spreadsheet) that match the users input.

Thank you for any feedback!

- Allow users to click a product price that is a webpage link

Can MTH provide these 2 features?

Thanks,

Search within PDF

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Hello,

I am in the process of evaluating MyTaskHelper.
The current software I am using (Appgini) has a search feature which unfortunately does not search and provide results of text contained within pdf files in my database.

Is this something I can do with MyTaskHelper?

You can't use a blank keyword search

This is probably because you have disabled cookies.
Please, see small ‘cookies required’ link at the bottom on the right side of your search form.

Hope it helps.

Advanced Customisation/ Design

Publication date: August 15, 2018

• Is it possible to press the submit button and have the results of the database load on the same page as the drop down boxes (form) in a different section of the page rather than redirecting to a new page upon “submit”?

• Once the form/ search is created, is it possible to have the HTML source code so that I can edit the look/ design/ layout of it?

• The same as above is for the code of the displayed results so I can completely style/ design the look and layout of the data (pulled from the DB).

is this possible?

Various Issues All Day - Now cant search

Publication date: August 16, 2018

We have been having numerous issues most of the day. Most are things like not updating, and having to double enter to get records in. Tonight I am trying to do a single criteria search for records I know are there and it is returning no records repeatedly.

Web Search Widget Errors

Publication date: August 16, 2018

We have 2 search widgets embedded on a single web page. Recently both widgets have begun returning intermittent “Blank Keyword” errors even if the search field is populated. Sometimes you must enter the same keyword in both Search widgets to get a result. If you enter different terms in each search you will get a result as if you search for a combined keyword. I’m not sure where to begin trouble shooting as the result are intermittent and variable. The behavior is also different based on browser though all are incorrect.

iFrame Not Working in iOS 8.1

Publication date: August 16, 2018

It is only if you try to search or update the record the issue shows up. It is fine in other iOS I tested on.

Leave Field Blank and Return Later

I cant see a way to do this. Anyone?

Sort widget

Bug in new record widget view

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I have a serious bug that I need your help to resolve;

1. new records are entered into the database.
2. some of the records are shown in the widget view.
3. others are not shown in the widget view but have been written to the database as a search reveals them.

Bug in Search parameter Dropdown.

Publication date: August 16, 2018

Click on the SEARCH function and then select a specific field from the list – when selected the option reverts to ALL – then the drop down is clicked all fields from the database are displayed rather than the limited fields set for the view. The result is that all the parameter and some confidential information fields are shown in the selection list

Empty Widget View allowing Search

Publication date: August 16, 2018

A empty widget view is allowing a search through records that are not added to the view.


This can be confusing for a user because it allows the search, shows 25 records even if more are “meeting search criteria”.


This should not allow search of a database that does not exist within the widget view.

Search by drop down field

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When I’m opening Search form and selecting Drop Down field it doesn’t work properly.


Most probably this is because I have selected drop down value by default not first, but second item. I.e. I have values: 1,2,3,4,5. And by default on the form and in the search box it shows 3 selected. However, it shows text ‘Search ColumnName like 1’, but I didn’t selected 1. So MTH by default searches for first drop down item, not selected currently in the form.

Search

Publication date: August 16, 2018

Very difficult to search content on the Database.

I would suggest a box for search on the left side of the page.

That would be a easy way/practice way for search content.

Looking forward to hear from them team.

Cheers, Natalia

Search is highly case sensitive

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I do a search, and it is highly case sensitive.

“Mark” must be “Mark[space]”

not

“mark[space]”

or

“Mark[no space]”

Current Widget - Too Short

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When a User enters multiple search criteria, then saves that criteria to use again later, the resulting name of it usually does not display fully in the “Current Widget” drop-down field, and, sometimes, the User will not be able to distinguish one from another, e.g., “LCMS Church = St. Johns and Baptism Readiness = A” and “LCMS Church = St. Johns and Baptism Readiness = C” appears the same in this drop-down field, since it is cutoff.

Search on Drop-down Field

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When a User searches on a drop-down field, it uses “Like”, instead of “=”, e.g., with my Project’s “Baptism Readiness” field, with drop-down values (UNKNOWN, A, B, C, Already Baptized), when I search on “A”, it not only returns Records with “A”, it also returns Records with “Already Baptized”. I only want the former, not the latter, to be returned. Please use “=”, instead of “like”, or, provide these as alternatives.

Drop-down Field & Search

Publication date: August 16, 2018

For a Drop-down Field (e.g., “Baptism Readiness” that has possible values of “A”, “B”, “C”, “UNKNOWN”, and “Already Baptized”), when using it in search criteria, ONLY ONE value may be used (e.g., if I search on “Baptism Readiness = A”, I cannot also search on it for “B” or “C”) – I don’t want to perform 3 searches (A/B/C).

Can only specify 1 search criteria

Publication date: August 16, 2018

When I try to specify more than 1 search criteria, it won’t allow it, and, a link stating that cookies are required is shown, even though cookies are able to be prompted for (IE8) – an error is indicated by IE which has the following detail:

Requied Value for "is not empty"

You can't use a blank keyword search

Publication date: August 16, 2018

First of all, this is a great program!

I’m an elementary teacher in the USA using it with my students.

It’s the best free database I’ve found on the web.

I have one problem though.

The search function works fine when I use it on your website, however, when I embed it onto my own website using the widget, the search keeps saying “You can’t use a blank keyword search”
even when I enter a keyword.

You can take a look at it here http://teachers.henrico.k12.va.us/staffdev/clough_d/DB/Sort.html

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Database search widget change

Publication date: August 17, 2018

Hi

It would be great if you could change the database search widget. I’d love for it to be changed so there is only the option to search for “is” (and not select this from a list including “like”, “is not”, etc. Would that be possible?

Let me know if you need any more details – you can take a look at the page on the website here – http://www.foundationtefl.co.uk/verification/

Thanks,

Change saved search criteria

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Could you change your search widget so that one can edit searches after you have created them?



At this moment, once a search is created, and you save it… you can name it, but then you can’t see any more what the search was based on and you can’t change it…



so if you want to change the search you have to delete it and create a new search and this causes loads of additional work.



Would appreciate if this suggestion could be implemented

Widget View. SEARCH

Publication date: August 20, 2018

When creating a widget view MTH would be even better if the field selection process allowed fields to be ADDED or REMOVED from the SEARCH function. It is crazy that the search function includes image fields for searching for example. The search function should only provide fields selected by the user which may not have been included in the widget itself. At the moment the user is forced to select the field and then position outside of the iframe if the field is to be available for search but not seen in the widget view. Please MTH, allow for user SEARCH SELECTION fields!

Group and filter by lookup field

Publication date: August 20, 2018

It is currently not possible to Group or Filter by lookup column. It only shows relational column in Search.

Today filter, search, grouping

Publication date: August 20, 2018

it would be great to be able to search, filter or group not just by Date, but using Today, Next Week, Last month filters.

Search for Mulitple Criteria on Same Column

Publication date: August 20, 2018

I need to save a view with a search that excludes two different criteria for the same column. For example: I want to show all the donations we receive for 2011 that are NOT Adoption Donations and are NOT Store. Right now, I can add additional criteria, but only from another column. Thanks!

Forum Topic Search

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Would it be possible to incorporate a Search capability in the forum to quickly identify whether a same or similiar topic has been addressed rather than search through multiple screens?

Add "NOT" for search criteria

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Please add “NOT” for the search criteria, e.g., so I can search for “Baptised in the U.S.” and NOT “Baptism Readiness = Already Baptised”.

Filter Search its better not in a -case sensitive-

Publication date: August 20, 2018

Why when I filter a search; for example I search the “Dog” in the database, it will say “Noting found” if i wrote small case “dog” only it can filtered if the exact capitalization I wrote “Dog” equals Dog" , but “dog” not equals “Dog”.

Search Counts

Publication date: August 20, 2018

I’d like for a SEARCH to return the search items, along with the number of items found.

Allow creation of checkboxes for record search

Publication date: August 20, 2018

When creating a database search, allow the creation of a search form that you can list choices. Such as…
5:00am to 6:00am
6:00am to 7:00 am
7:00 am to 8:00 am

These would match entries in the database

Searching

Publication date: August 20, 2018

It would be nice when searching a database, it told you it was searching rather than just leaving you wondering…
