Search for Locations

When searching for locations, you can use special symbols to make your search more precise.

You can initiate an exact search by including quotation marks around the name of the location, as pictured above.  CommCare will provide the user suggestions matching the exact text, so for instance, "Cambridgeport" wouldn't appear.


You can use slashes to specify multiple location levels, narrowing your search.  For example, typing "mass" will show you "Massachusetts":

Adding a slash afterward will start a new search among the results

You may then type to search in those results

This can be done multiple times

These two techniques can also be combined for maximal precision
