By default, entries can be searched by Chapter, Category, Score sets, and Status for all judging modes including galleries (some judging modes also have additional options). However, you may want judges to be able to search entries by a field you have created. Searchable fields on score sets allow you to add some of your own fields to the search filter for judges.
For example, you might want judges to be able to search for entries by company name (see screenshot below). If this is an entry field you have created you'll be able to add it to the search filter. A maximum of three searchable fields can be added. Please note, the limit is based on the field resource rather than the total number of fields i.e you’re allowed 3 entry fields, 3 contributor fields, etc.
Most field types are searchable, however, there are a handful of field types that are not searchable. They are Checkbox list, Content, Date, Date & time, File upload (single), and Time.
Add a field to the search filter
- Go to Judging > Score sets and click on the name of the score set
- Go to the Display tab
- Under the section Searchable fields, select the field/s you want to be searchable
- Click Save
To add fields to the search filter on Manage entries or Users, see How to search and filter
