Feature Description Search filter

Feature Description Search – Search for certain text within the feature description field. Currently, Feature Name has this feature but not Feature Description. Today the filter for Feature Description only gives you Empty, Not Empty, and Both.

Ideally, I would like to have a filter called Feature Name & Description Search so it would search both the Feature Name and Description at the same time. This feature is useful for doing the feature name and description clean up work to ready them for CFN. We do have an overall AHA database search but that search is use to locate a single record. I need it in the form of a filter so I get a list of all the features that match so I can correct them one at a time. (AHA does not have a search & replace feature this each record must be corrected one at a time.)

You might be thinking why not just correct all of it in Excel and CSV update it back in? Some of the really good descriptions such as the ones Ianik writes, actually have text formatting, bulleted text, and graphics. All of that would be lost if I imported the text back in via CSV update.

    There are features where our organization is adding complex descriptions so being able to text search this field will be very helpful to avoid exporting to excel to perform this function.
