Search in Table


Customer runs into issue that they sometimes are not sure how a Czech name is spelled (or was entered wrong). When searching the search is diacritic specific.

Is that foreseen in a future release as an option? ( option:search ignoring diacritics f.e), or is it already possible and I am missing a point or setting?

If not, is it possible to write custom search function? I wouldl like to make a search where I can use normalize('NFD') for example. But I am not aware of any functions that would allow me to go through the visualized table (aside of doing the query in background via doo.table? ).

Thank you in advance!

PS: I created extra field where I fill in name without diacritics automatically via JS, but it is only one field and a pity to “double” the data like that :man_shrugging:t2:

It is currently not possible to ignore diacritics in searches. We will discuss this with the development team in a meeting.
