Lars is currently coding something very useful: A search function for the SP-Studio!
With this new search bar you will be able to filter all items for their names without browsing the categories. But we struggle to find the best place for it.
Important: This will just be a little extra, because picking the wrong words will limit your results.
For example it will be nearly impossible to search for certain hair styles this way. I don't even know how to call them in German. The search will only work in German and English, because I cannot translate anything else. This is why I don't want to put the search bar in a dominant spot. Using the categories will still the best way to find what you are looking for in most cases. So they should be used first.
This is why I am asking for your opinions on where to place the search function. Should it be a little search icon or should the search bar be visible instantly? Should it be in the category menu next to the main category icons? Or at a totally different place? We most likely need to deal with the mobile and desktop version in different ways.
I am curious about your thoughts.
