The blue dot normally means that something in your filter can't be delegated and it will have to be done in app on the first 500 records returned. If any of those first 500 records don't meet your filter criteria the gallery will be empty. So I am assuming the list has more than 500 items in it.
If you only have 80 items then you should get results back even if you have the blue dot. My guess is that there is an issue with the formula. You can troubleshoot by first using just the Filter function and if that returns results then you know that part is good. Then try the Search function and if that fails then you know that is problem area.
If you plan on having more than 500 items (or more than 2,000 if you use the new row limt feature) then you should follow @Sienna suggestion because the date filtering is going to cause the filter not to be delegable.
Not sure how that search can work
Try something simple like
Filter('1022 Operations Dashboard',StartsWith("insert the fields to search", extSearchBox1.Text), And DataCard21.SelectedDate = "datefield you want to search")
If that works you can then start building the sort
The blue dot means the result is not deleagble. In the case I just gave you you should not get a bluedot. You will if you change the = to <= or >=. This based on a restriction of 500 records on teh server side. ere has been a recent upgrade where you can increas this to 2000 but this is on teh client side.
Use a ClearCollect Statement to bring your dates table into PowerApps with, an Add Column function and use the Tex function to set your date to yyyymmdd. Then in your filter use the starts with (Text(DateField.selected,"yyyymmdd").
That should get you the xpected result.
Thanks for the help so far. This is how far I have gotten.
SortByColumns(Search('1022 Operations Dashboard',TextSearchBox1.Text,"WorkerName","JobOrderNumber","Title","Trade"),"JobStartDate",Descending)
Want to add an additional search by date picker to reference a date picker:
SortByColumns( Search( Filter( '1022 Operations Dashboard', DateColumninDataSource = DatePicker.SelectedDate ), TextSearchBox1.Text, "WorkerName", "JobOrderNumber", "Title", "Trade" ), "JobStartDate", Descending )
You can search the filtered view which shows only records matching the selected date.
