Searching multiple fields in a SharePoint List with over 2000 entries

Hi all,

 

I have an inventory app that allows users to store info into our SharePoint List, and Search it. We have just gone over 2000 devices so it's only searching the original 2000 records.

 

I have looked and can't workout the solution for this, so this is what I would like to achieve:

 

Text search that searches my sharepoint list in field 1, field 2, field 3 and displays results in a gallery.

 

The fields will be serial number (supplied from barcode scanner) or user device assigned too, or school name.

 

Thanks

Search isn't delegable, so you won't be able to just Search on multiple fields.  Since the things being used for Search are so different I would suggest using three separate textboxes and filter statements based on StartsWith()

Filter(Filter(Filter(datasource, StartsWith(Field1, Textbox1.Text)),StartsWith(Field2, Textbox2.Text), StartsWith(Field3, Textbox3.Text))
