Discord-like Search Functionality for Flows

Post by Pepy » 18 Jul 2019 01:28

In the main screen of Automatic, to make the search function even more powerful, I was thinking of implementing special keywords. These are some that I can think of:
  • Element(s): You can specify specific elements you want to search for. For example, let's say I want to search for the keyword "alarms" in only flows that have the elements Sleep action and Perform Action on Notification on Statusbar action.
  • Where: Whether to search inside flow title(s), description(s), element(s) or note(s)
  • *When: Search only in flows that have been edited recently or on/since the specified date
  • *State: Search only in flows that are currently enabled or disabled (can be useful if there are lots of results)
Without this, you would need to look through each flow to see which one has what you're looking for. This can be really troublesome the more flows you have since the result is all grouped in one big list.
Newbie to device automation! Hope my post was helpful, useful or informative :D
