Make the SEARCH feature more functional
While there are thousands of images, they’re very difficult to find. It would be so helpful to filter and search to find what we need. This could be done by adding tags to all assets. For “Pablo Presenting,” for example, some tags could be: male, man, business, presentation, pitch, African_American, Caucasian, Hispanic, etc. I think this would reduce the number of requests for assets that are already there. I LOVE Doodly, but I t’s frustrating and time consuming to scroll through thousands of images to find something that may or may not be there. Thanks!

I agree. Even the current search is lacking. I have searched for characters by name and been surprised to find not all their images appear. More keywords would be helpful and will only become more necessary as the library grows.

This has got to be my #1 issue. There may be a lot of imagery provided, but searching around for it is counter-productive.

it took me 1 hour to find a set of suitable boy characters. i cannot imagine working with default library.

I just bought mine, and that was my 1st frustration. Looking for scene is hard. It doesn't even show the name or a search box, and I paid for the premium upgrade. So let me know if I am still stuck in Standard, because I was expecting more variety, like sports characters, wedding scenes etc.

The total lack of real search functionality is driving me crazy. I logged in to the site specifically to offer this feedback. I find Doodly to be practically unusable because of the impossibility of sifting through thousands of images to find what I need. I have to write down the names of characters I might want to use on a sticky note for every project. Until functional search with usable tags is in place, I won't be using or recommending Doodly to anyone. What a colossal waste of my time.

Amen! I waste so much time having to scroll through images. The current search is barely functional, and it would not take much to make it beneficial. I vote YES!

Yes! I was really surprised that the elements didn't have tags. I would say it is still worth scrolling if you're just playing around but I cannot imagine doing it on a tight schedule.

I agree, my biggest frustration is trying to narrow down who the characters are and their names. A name means nothing to me. But if I could filter by gender, weight description, race, and activity/action, etc. For example, instead of 'every man' appearing when I type middle-aged man with glasses, I would only get a middle-aged man with glasses. Perhaps, a character map, at the very least, so we can relate the name to the headshot or body shot of the character. Tagging should really be a primary feature. I find I am spending too much time, just trying to arrive at my primary character. Forget it if I'm trying to get a family together. I think Doodly is on the right track, yet this enhancement would make it far more user friendly.
