Searchable Student Custom Fields
We’ve had a few requests at QuickSchools to have some of the custom fields to display on the main listing, as well as to have custom fields to be searchable. We’re happy to announce that a first version of this functionality has been released for the Students screen (other modules will follow soon). Here’s what your Students listing can look like.
If you decide to display only one of your many custom fields, the name of the custom field will appear on that table header:
If you decide to display 2 or more custom fields, in order to save space, all fields will appear under the same column. We recommend only allowing a few important / frequently used custom fields to be displayed on the main screen:
To define which custom fields are displayed, and which custom fields to be included in the search, you’ll need to configure the Custom Fields for the Students listing. Essentially, once you’ve clicked on “Configure Form”, you’ll see an updated screen that looks like this:
You can then specify which fields are included in the search (via the “Search” column), and which fields to display in the main table (via the “Display” column). For performance reasons, there is currently a limit of 3 search fields 3 display fields, but this may change in the future.
Please do let us know if you find this feature useful, or if you have suggestions for further improvement.
