Thanks for checking our our first Trusty Tip!
:star_struck:....SEARCHING by ID :star_struck:

Have you ever wanted a quick way to find a case's record just by using their case ID? Find a form using it's form ID? Or you've got an owner_id, but you have no idea if that's a user ID, a case sharing group, or a location?

CommCare allows you to search all of CommCare HQ at once for an ID, by typing in Log In :: CommCare HQ - CommCare HQ where you replace ID with your string. You can make this even easier by setting up CommCare as a search engine in Google Chrome, so you just type a short code (like cc) into your browser, press tab, enter your ID, and voilà, there's your ID's page! Check out this two-minute video that shows you how to set this up for yourself.

**Note, this functionality is only available for your project space's Admin users, since it searches across many tabs (data, users, organizational hierarchy).

check out this short video tutorial that will get you up and running in only two minutes! (thank you Erin!)
