Similar to the search widget options, it would be great to allow searching by a feature in Operations Dashboard, not just by the default world geocoder.

You actually can do this. In the map's settings, check the box "By Layer". Then you are able to specify what you would like to be searched. You can then search for that feature in the Operations Dashboard.

Thanks Jared - super useful! I just updated my webmap settings and can now search by business name in my dashboard! Check it out: https://symgeo.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/28693061ccf44be4b6510e3791b25cf6 (desktop) or https://symgeo.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/0abb0867fe504615b587617662d71d6f (mobile)

Would be helpful to have search widget option without having a map, to be able to search complex non-spatial datasets.

@MelissaWilliams1 We'd have to consider a search capability without having a map as a separate idea. If you'd like to pursue that as something for the community to weigh in on, might we ask that you submit a new post?

@KevinMcMaster2 , which dashboard version you are using, in my dashboard map setting, there isn't a check box option for By_Layer.

I wonder if you could help or anything I am missing. 

Kind regards,

Hi @LLIN , so the dashboard was the "classic" mode, but the trick is that the setting is in the webmap settings (not in the dashboard). So, whatever webmap is powering the dashboard, go to settings there, and check out the options. Hope that is helpful!
