Improved flitering for dropdown fields in IEG

v8.0.1 makes use of the Carbon dropdowns in SPM to improve the usability to help caseworkers to quickly find and select options. Options in the dropdown are filtered to show all options that contain the typed input, based on the contains filter method. Dropdowns in v7 were filtered based on 'Starts with'.

IEG was not moved to Carbon so the dropdown fields behave as they did in v7, with filtering based on 'Starts with'. This has introduced a behaviour decrepancy in SPM as caseworkers experience different dropdown filtering behaviour depending on which component of SPM they are using. Caseworkers in the Scottish Government who use IEG regularly for Decision Assist, often struggle to match options that display in certain dropdown fields (e.g. Types of Disabilities) because they may not know how the disability is spelt (e.g. Pneumonia (starts with a silent 'P')).

This enhancement request is for dropdown fields in IEG to filter all options based on the caseworkers typed input. This change will also align IEG dropdown fields to behave in the same manner as the rest of SPM.

Customer Name The Scottish Government
Persona Based Summary

As a caseworker

I want IEG dropdown fields to filter the options based on my typed input

So that the only options that display are based on the characters I have typed

Market Segment WH Government
Type of Request Customer Requirement

Alignment of the product so that all dropdown fields filter in a consistent manner.

    Hi Colin,


    We are pleased to inform you that your enhancement request has been delivered in the new release of Cúram version 8.1.1.0 on 8th Dec 2023.

    The dropdown sort and filter mechanism has been enhanced to match and present content that contains or starts with a particular character.

    This feature improves the sort and filter in the dropdown so the user can select an option with fewer keystrokes.

    The filtered dropdown options are sorted and displayed in the following order:

    * First, dropdown options that start with the characters that are entered are displayed, for example, entering 'i' returns Iceland.

    * Then, for options that contain more than one word, options that contain a word that starts with the entered characters are displayed, for example, entering ‘I’ returns Cayman Island.

    * Then, the remaining options that contain the entered characters are displayed, for example, entering 'i' returns Albania.

    This enhancement applies to dropdowns in Intelligent Evidence Gathering (IEG) and as the same was previously delivered in 8.1.0.0 for drop-down in UIM pages, this now provides consistent dropdown behaviour for caseworkers across all of Cúram application.


    For more detailed information on this new capability, please visit https://curam-spm-devops.github.io/wh-support-docs/spm/announcements/811_announcement


    Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas with us. We are now closing this request as delivered.

    Regards,
