Hello Softr Community,
I’ve been exploring the functionalities within the Softr platform and I’ve run into a bit of a roadblock that I’m hoping to get some support and potential insights on.

While I understand that each tool and feature has its own specific rules and limitations, this discovery leads me to make a request for a new feature.

As a new feature request, I propose the ability to prefill the search bar using URL parameters.
I’m sure that your insights and support can help shape this feature to be a useful tool for many of us in the Softr community.
Thank you in advance for considering this request and any insights or suggestions you may provide.
