Filter cards: Search one value, filter on another?

We use a client ID system where each client gets a long number string as an identification number. On one of my dashboards, I would like to be able to search a client name, but have the dashboard filter by its corresponding client ID (because we can have multiple records of the same client). Is this a possibility using filter cards - to be able to search one value, but filter by a different value? Thanks!

Hi @user067324 

 

Right now you can't filter other cards based on a different field than the one you selected. It would be a great feature enhancement but currently isn't possible based on how Domo is designed.

Just JOIN the CLIENT_ID and the CLIENT_LegibleText to your dataset ... then build a filter using CLIENT_LegibleText.

 

Am i not understanding something?

My understanding was to filter based on the ID when selecting a client name because there's the possibility of duplicate names for different records. So selecting one column (name) and filtering based on a different column (ID) wasn't possible.
