In case number of users/groups is high, it becomes very difficult to find the user to assign the workflow to. Screenshot below:
Is there a way OOTB to have autocomplete dropdown instead of normal dropdown where authors can search for name and get a filtered list of application assignees?
Thanks in advance!
Rendering logic related to this makes use of <coral-select> tag.
Script responsible - /libs/cq/gui/components/coral/common/admin/timeline/alerts/workflow/provider.jsp
Autocomplete functionality is available OOB but to incorporate the same to this flow requires customization.
The one from Inbox makes use of Coral UI3 select field (granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/select) and its items are populated in JS - /libs/cq/inbox/gui/components/inbox/clientlibs/inbox/js/inbox.item.actions.completetask.js
Per the logic implemented, it is not using autocomplete feature.
Regarding your previous query, Per the reference doc for <coral-select>, no mention of autocomplete feature
If you are looking to customize, I suggest you to refer foundation-autocomplete which can work with fields like pathfield, tags, select so on. Related doc for reference
