Search Facility in Select Tool

Hello Team,

 

Currently, in the select tool, we have to scroll up or down to check or see the list of the fields. In case, if the user wanted to change the data type, they can scroll into the list. Like, I am working on the mid-size data, and sometimes data contain 300+ fields, if I need to change anything in the data type I have to search by scrolling up or down. 

 

The idea here is, If you provide a search bar under Field, it will be a great help to all, in case if anyone needs to go for some specific field, the user just types the name in the search bar and make changes quickly. The select tool is important and we used much time while working on the flow. 

 

Thank you,

Mayank

Hello, @patrick_digan, Is there any chance my idea will accept?

 

I feel if Alteryx starts providing a search facility in the select it will help a lot of users.

@Mayank09 I don't have any control over what ideas get accepted/added into the product, but this particular idea is one that several aces have mentioned to the folks at alteryx before. There are a lot of good enhancements on the ideas board, and the good folks at alteryx decide which ones to add to the product with each release. There are a large number of different factors that they have to think about.
