      I am trying to use saved searches on iOS.
      I have multiple forms with link fields.
      My problem is when I try to create a new search because the “link fields” do not appear as an option to select it, only all other not linked fields appear.
      Can I be doing something wrong or maybe I need to do something different?

    Hi Alejandro,

    Tap Forms can only create Saved Searches on the parent form. Not on the child forms.

    But you can create a Saved Search on the child form directly to filter that. You just can’t filter the parent records directly with values obtained from the related child form.

    However, you could write a script to get information from the child form to propagate up to the parent and then do searches on that. Or with a one-to-many relationship, you could add a Calculation field or a Script field which extracts information from the parent form. Then you could add the search directly to the child form.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you Brendan!
    I tried both ways and they worked perfectly!
