Reports: The capability to search Text boxes (single line of text, paragraph of text etc.) for word matches
Previously, when you ran a report and wanted to include a filter, you could only include a filter for fields that were defined (single selection fields, or number fields), you could NOT search Text fields. Now you can search and set filters for text fields in the system.
You can now search Text boxes for specific text matches. This feature is automatically available in the Reports Page
When you run a report you can set specific search parameters for text fields now. Run the report and if you want to search records for a specific word or even phrase, you can add in a report filter (using the green + button), then:
1: Select the Field name (e.g. question name) that you want to search for text in
2: Choose whether you want to do a:
-Contains: will search the text and find matches for any partial matches e.g. if you type in Dr John it will return any searches that have a Dr John in them such as Dr Johns and Dr Johnson.
-Equal To will search the text and find exact matches for the search term e.g. if you type in Dr John it will only return searches where only Dr John is in the text, not as part of a word (e.g. it will not return Dr Johnson).
-Not Equal To will search the text for an exact match and will return all results that are not equal to this search e.g. if you type in Dr John, it will return all results when the Doctors name is NOT Dr John (e.g Dr Johns and Johnson will be returned, but a Dr John will not ).
3: (in the step below): write in the search Term that you want to use for the filter e.g. Dr John
