Improved Search across your shots

From the beginning of Visualizer v2, you’ve been able to filter your shots by bean brand and type. It was a very primitive way of narrowing down your shots, but it worked.

A couple of months later, I’ve added the basic search across public shots. There have been constant improvements to the search page ever since. Adding the autocomplete of fields, adding narrowing down shots by the user, and just recently, I’ve added narrowing down by grinder and notes.

Today I expanded the search page with one tiny but massive change. You can now select yourself even if you’re not public. I take privacy very seriously so let me make this clear: if you are not public, then only you can see your shots, no one else. If you haven’t defined your name in your profile, you select yourself by your email. Only you can see your email, no one else.

I still have those links on bean brand and type in Your Shots view:

Search Links

but when you click them, you’re no longer on the filtered Your Shots page, but you’re taken to the Search page filtered by whatever you clicked on and your user:

Search Box

There you can narrow down your shots even further to find exactly what you’re looking for.
