How to use fuzzy search?

Hi - Neither of the fuzzy search plugins are working:

On the demo pages they have the field search but when using it in the app via the plugin, there is no search option.

What I see:

What’s the type of your data source?

The ‘Field to search’ does not show up in my app.

@ZeroqodeSupport - I am not sure how to see what you’re seeing.

There are two different Search & Autocorrect elements and neither give me the option to search a field

Ah. Good point. It’s an Airtable source. Should I choose text? Or something else?

Hello @raconcilio ,
Thank you for your qiuck reply.

Please note that the “Field to search” fields will not be visible if the data type field is left empty. To ensure these fields appear, you must set both the data source and the data type appropriately.

Additionally, it’s crucial to use the “do a search for” function in the data source field to facilitate effective search operations. It’s important to mention that the searching functionality will work properly only with text format fields. Therefore, please ensure that you are only searching within “text” fields for optimal results.

Furthermore, we highly recommend exploring our plugin’s live demo page, the demo editor page, and our documentation. These resources are invaluable for understanding the workflow and setup, and they can be a great reference when you are building your app and incorporating specific functionalities.

If you have any further queries or need assistance, please feel free to reach out.

What data types are necessary? This is an Airtable database type with a list of fields to search. What settings need to be there for the fields to show up?

@ZeroqodeSupport - If you can please assist further, I would appreciate it.

My data field is not empty. It is connected to an airtable base / the Airtable plugin but the field to search does not work.

What do you recommend?

Hello @raconcilio ,
Thank you for your quick reply.

After reviewing your requirements, it appears that the Free Fuzzy plugin may not be the ideal solution for your specific needs. This plugin is primarily designed to work with the Bubble database. So while it is an effective tool for accessing data stored in the Bubble environment, it does not support extracting data from external services such as Airtable.

However, I would like to suggest an alternative that may meet your needs. Our Fuzzy Search Pro plugin may be just what you are looking for. This advanced plugin is capable of interacting with the Airtable database, offering you the functionality you need. Specifically, it includes an “Airtable Search Pro” feature designed to search Airtable datasets.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Hi @ZeroqodeSupport - That still does not work. Please confirm I have the correct element.

Hello @raconcilio ,
Thank you for getting back to us.

We looked at your screenshot and came to the conclusion that you put the wrong element.
Please put Airtablesearch element as shown in the screenshot below and everything should work out. :blush:

Also, feel free to check our demo page and documentation of this plugin to better understand its features and functionality.
