[Feature request] Searchable collection names

edited October 21, 2022
I use collections extensively; as such, I sometimes forget where I placed sub-collections.

Solution: Allow collection to be searched. This could be done on the current search bar (a new dropdown could be "Collection"), with a new search bar on top of the folder section, or in the advancement menu when collection is selected allow this to be searchable.

I realise I could use tags to do this but I prefer the visual structure folders afford.

Please let me know if this is already possible or if there are any plugins or solutions!
  • Just to be clear. Are you talking about Zotero collections/subcollections?

    Yes, I'm actually talking about collections/subcollections when I say folders. I'll update that. Thanks for pointing that out. Do you know if this is possible? If not, do you think it is will be useful to add?

    Collection search might happen at some point, but you can click a collection and press + to expand all and then just start typing the name of a collection to select it.

    Thanks, dstillman. That helps at least. I hope it can get introduced at some point. I just noticed a few others have also requested this on another post: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/23377/searching-collection-names/p2
