Search Features

Whenever you configure a Data Manager section, you also setup a powerful search tool that can be used to query the database you are mapping to.

The Search Screen

Through the section's search configuration, you may specify which fields are displayed on the search page, as well as which subsections are displayed.

For numeric and date fields, users have the option of searching for values that are equal, not equal, greater than, lesser than, greater than or equals, lesser than or equals, between or not in between the search value they enter.

For text fields, users can specify parameters such as 'and', 'or', and 'not' to powerfully search through the contents of text fields.
