Search using more than 1 label?

Cris_BowersCris_Bowers Member Posts: 281 PRO
I just added labels to my documents as a way to find things easier within Onshape. But it seems I can't select multiple labels to refine my search. Am I missing something? I want to search by customer and product type and there may be a few more labels to refine the search further. I'd like to avoid typing these in the search field if at all possible and just select them from a list.

    Seems like the functionality should go here: in the Advanced Search "Add Criteria" dropdown:

    Labels are currently not populating that list - it's just Properties from the Properties dialog. To populate the Properties with potentially-useful Label- or Tag-type info requires:
    1.  opening each document and adding the properties there.
    2. Right-click Document > Versions and History >click the little Settings Cog on the right side of the screen (Can't we just Rt-click ???) >Properties
    However, there are very few Properties available at the Document level (this kind of makes sense, since so much information can change per Workspace / Version / Revision).
    Looking at the Properties section of my "Company Settings", it looks like you can't add Custom Properties at the Document level, either:

    It would be great if we could edit Properties for a Document from the Documents List (not just inside the Document).

    ...After going down this Rabbit Hole, I think Labels perform a different and important function than Properties (mostly because they're Properties at the Document level), and we should be able to search more than one!

    @Cris_Bowers I made an IR here: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/11499/search-multiple-labels-in-advanced-search/p1?new=1

    Thanks for starting the IR. I hadn't started one because I wasn't sure if I was just missing it.
