Search Subscription Widget
The update of the subscription widget with v18 brought great features like favourite workspaces and auto-subscribed pages on top. Sadly, the search function of the widget has been removed. This was a great feature and we dearly miss it. Although the "show more" now shows 20 more entries, the search was much more convenient.
Therefore we hope that you reconsider the removal and hopefully see it in the future again.

I found this comment from Jan from 2017 which contains some nice ideas in my opinion: https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010-coyo-web/suggestions/32545750-keyboard-shortcuts
Maybe also add 'L' for launchpad to that list.
Well yes, the favourite workspace feature is nice and will indeed find great use.
However as long as we can't favourite pages in the same way, we at least need a search for the pages ;-)
Edit: Additionally it is quite hard to convince 80k users that a convenient feature like this has been removed.
's' for search is currently the only shortcut (I'm actually thinking about a shortcut for accessing the launchpad but it's not there yet. If you have specific shortcut ideas that would help you and your users in COYO, just let me know via new suggestions.).
Regarding your workspace case: maybe you just wanna explain them the 'mark as favorite' feature again... ;-)
But anyways, I'm gonna leave this suggestion open a bit and then we'll see if there's support in the community for it.

thank you for your insight! The shortcut 's' is awesome! I would love to see more shortcuts - do you have any more? I can't seem to find any kind of documentation about this.
Regarding the search in the widget:
Since the update to v10 from Coyo 3 in June we trained our users to use this search, as the "show more" currently only adds 5 more with every click. Many of our users have more than 10 workspaces in there, thus the search in the widget is a quicker way for them to access the desired workspace faster.
We therefore are still a big fan of the search and would love to see it come back 😊
thanks for your suggestion.
Yep, you're right. The search functionality in the 'subscriptions' widget has been removed during the respective migration / improvement.
Our motivation behind it was to remove complexity from COYO as we now offer a pretty convenient way to quickly access a page/workspace via the global search (suggestions):
From anywhere in COYO you can access the global search via the keyboard shortcut 's' and just start typing the page/workspace you want to navigate to. It will then appear as a suggestion in the dropdown and you can access it.
Does that help you or are you still a fan of the dedicated search possibility within the widget?
Great! Also what Fynn said. I've heard the same, though I am pretty sure the designer was the one who was better looking 🤔

Hey there, thank you for the feedback. I have complete confidence in your skills. I heard you have a very competent and good looking designer and an even better looking developer working on it.
Is that just an ideal or did you start working on it?
