Search within a dynamic collection?
We have a custom dynamic collection, which is correct showing all our computers which don't have a certain service installed. So far, so good.
When looking at the computer in that collection, I want to search through it for computers which have certain characters strings in their names. At the upper-right corner of the collection screen is the "type here to filter" box. I had hoped that I could type in some characters and then computers with that string in the name would be the only ones shown. However, this is not the case... it shows me *all* computers which meet that criteria, not just those from the collection which met that criteria.
So, does one search within a collection? CTRL-F or F3 don't work.
Do you have your custom collection selected in the left navigation tree?
I just tested this in the latest version of Inventory, and filtering within a custom collection works as expected. As Colby said, are you certain you have selected your collection from the tree on the left?
Yes, I do have the collection selected correctly in the tree, BUT... I was reading the list of filtered computers incorrectly, thinking that one of the displayed computers was a different machine (which shouldn't be in the list, and isn't, but I mistakenly thought it was).
Whew, crisis averted! Glad you got it sorted and it wasn't a bug or bigger issue :)
