Is it possible to autocomplete from a large list

1. What is the problem? Be very detailed.
I wonder if there is a way to include a long list of items or ID code and we do auto complete(Like to write the first to # or letter then autocompleteing.
2. What app or server are you using and on what device and operating system? Include version numbers. ODK Aggregate

3. What you have you tried to fix the problem?

4. What steps can we take to reproduce the problem?

5. Anything else we should know or have? If you have a test form or screenshots or logs, attach below.

Hi @Nawaf and welcome on the ODK forum.

Yes you can do it by using external csv files and use the search() function and its start-with option. This recent thread will help you :

In the relevant column you can check the length of the search values to start after 2 or 3 or more characters.


Thank you Mathieu, I think Nawaf's request is where to put this "SEARCH" under which column? within the ODK design.
Is it under appearance?

Yes, here is the documentation
