I am looking at redesigning a search form, which has multiple cases of ‘And/Or’ in between 6 different input boxes.
So a user must enter at least 1 piece of search criteria, but may enter up to 7 if he/she wishes.
Ideally, I would like to house them within one search box, with a drop down menu for different category searches. (mentioned on this similar post here).
This solves the ‘or’ part of the functionality, but am wondering how can I also implement the ‘And’ function in a similar type solution.
I did not like the idea of adding extensive notes to search bar and some of the search criteria is quite unique: Name, Location, Application Number, Date Application was received, Date Decision was made etc
Has anyone got any good examples of this in use or came across similar design problems in the past?
