How to search my notes in app?

Postby BretPehrson » Mon Feb 11, 2019 12:47 pm

Is there a way to /search/ my notes through android app? I understand that I can browse them (Library, Notes, All tab), but I want to actually search within my notes, for example, find all of my notes that include 'prepare'.

I can do this online (notes.lds.org).

I don't see how to do it in the app.

Have a nice day.

Yes, if you tap the Search icon in the top right, then search for "prepare," you will see several tabs along the top of the search result. One of the tabs is called "Notes" and has any notes that match your search.

Is there a specific search route that must be used to be sure to have the notes included in a given search? I have previously been able to get a search result in Notes, but it’s inconsistent; sometimes a result will show (0) for notes even though I KNOW there’s a note to be found with that search.

I've seen an issue before where the count in parentheses on a tab isn't always accurate – for example, the title on the tab might show "Notes (0)" but if you actually tap on the tab you can see a few notes listed. Is that what you're seeing, or are the notes you expect not listed even after tapping on the tab?
