In my column header drop down in list view, when I choose "Filter By" option, there is No search option, Only check boxes.

There are different column types and in neither of them I can type in to search.

What am I missing?

  • This is default behavior in SharePoint. Search in filter by is available for text and person/people columns but not for number, choice, date and lookup columns. Commented Nov 27, 2023 at 8:21
  • Okay thanks. And there is no way to change that? (Just to clarify)

This is the default behavior in SharePoint Online modern experience list views.

As per my testing, text search option in "Filter by" pane is available for:

  1. Single line of text and
  2. Person or group (people) columns, etc.

And text search option in "Filter by" pane is not available for:

  1. Number
  2. Choice
  3. Date and Time
  4. Lookup columns, etc.

Also, there is no way to customize/change this behavior in SharePoint online modern experience as it is a SharePoint out of the box feature.
