Quick search on multiple columns in a PowerApp view

Scenario

I have an entity called Flower and I'm displaying a view for it in a Model driven app. By default, the quick search on the top right side only side on the Name column

Original

As can be seen, the search will not incorporate results matching secondfield column

Solution

Under the modern view (you can use classic but I found it didn't completely work properly (name wasn't being displayed as an option)), go to the entity -> view and find the Quick Find View

Quick Find View

Under Find By, add the columns you want to be searchable

Find By

Save and publish

Result

Result


The secondfield column is now also searchable
