I've been researching this concept for a long time - stumped. I am only a site owner (no real permissions, limited designer ability). Have been able to accomplish most of my non out-of-the-box supported features through custom client-side code, but really stuck here.
I want a "welcome" page (just a blank page) that has the following search options:
- text box
- drop down menu (group)
- drop down menu (division)
The combination of these values should return the list of items. The text, group, and division fields are columns on the list we are searching.
-various filtering mechanisms in designer
-_layouts/OSSSearchResults.aspx page (no luck)
Within designer, there are many options that will suffice, but how can i establish the connection with a particular list, and the columns stored within?
i feel like this is very simple - just a simple search feature. please help.
