Some of our users were wondering if Trim could be configured to not display a search result showing each new record that is entered into the dataset. I couldn't find a way to do this, does anybody know if the client can be configured this way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Just to add to this.... you can define a search as "all and not registered:previous 30 days" (or something similar) and then save it (make sure the owner is not set so that everyone can see it). Then set your default search filter to include "within another saved search" and use the new saved search. The push the setting to global, ensure your ensures get global, and don't let them bypass global.
And there you go. Very weird and many ways to make this not very effective, but it's a shot.

I worry that would hinder normal use of the program, if they were trying to search for their own records. It doesn't seem the search filter can be made as specific as "not show my records registered within the past 5 minutes." I don't suppose that can be done then?
Without trying it, I wonder if filtering it out would actually cause an empty search results window to pop up after they enter the record? It would make sense to me that Trim might do this, since it acts as if it's just performing a search for the record that was just entered.

I was asked about this again today and almost forgot I'd asked about it on the forum before, but did anybody have any other ideas about how to achieve this?

Unfortunately, I cannot see a way to elegantly tailor TRIM to enable this 'feature' for your users...
Hopefully, another member might be able to offer you another avenue to look into...
Why have your organisation requested this? Maybe if we know the scenario a lightbulb moment might click on for a few of us...

A user was getting annoyed that Trim progressively got slower throughout the day as she entered many records into the dataset. She came to find that after she closed all of the dozens of search result windows that had each opened for each record she had entered, it sped back up. She can manually close all of these windows, but it is an extra step for her.

Is there a relatively complete list of functional differences between Trim and Trim Desktop available? We never use the latter and I don't know if it would do all of the things she needs.

If for whatever reason, you do not go with Desktop, you can place a 'close all windows' button on her toolbar. She can click it once and viola, all her TRIM panes automagically closes for her.
Thank you for responding with the scenario by the way... it makes so much more sense to know what is actually happening... and it os easier for the community to provide real solutions.
All the best...

Thank you, I hadn't considered adding the WindowCloseAll function to a toolbar, she may find that convenient.
Unfortunately we've had some DBA turnover lately so we cannot build a Trim 8 test environment right now, let alone upgrading our production dataset.
