Reluctantly, I have to agree with the generalization that search is not as straight-forward as I would prefer. I say reluctantly, because I may not be adequately acquainted, yet, with how the synergy for the search function and what I might expect and what results, at least for my sensibilities, is a bit confusing. There’s so much “right” with roon that I hesitate as I consider I haven’t yet learned how to use the search function and other “tools” for managing my interface with roon, which I rate as a marvelous program that justified my purchase of a lifetime license without even a trial.
Any plans for implementing search functions for the future? Or is it where roon Labs designed it as “just right”.
Hey @mvrlogins – I’m able to reproduce the issues you’re describing, so it’s not just you.
I absolutely agree this could be better, and I think there’s a lot more we could be doing to make search in Roon great, way beyond just allowing for search of performer and album name.
We’ll be discussing this and working on making some improvements in the future, so I’m going to move this to Feature Requests, so others can contribute ideas and suggestions as the changes come together.
Appreciate you flagging this and giving us this feedback – keep it coming!
Thank you for responding and for following through with re-evaluation of the search function/operations/synergy so that we can better sort through and reach our collections. In my experience navigating whether manually scrolling or plugging in a artist’s name, an album title, even a song title is not elegantly executed. Appreciate how open roon Labs are for implementing change that contributes to facile application that brings the collection into a focus we define with a variety of sorting choices.
