I was making a short video for support to demonstrate a problem when adding a new field in Data Designer, and I wanted to add a field I actually needed. It took me about 90 seconds to click through all of the “show more fields” to find the look up, more “show more fields”, find the other lookup and then get to the field I want. I only went a couple layers deep, and I knew exactly where I was going so it isn’t like there was much durdling around.
I realize there is a search, and had I known the exact name of the field that would have been great. I’m not sure what a good proposed solution is, but it would be great if the navigation would more condusive to quicker navigation. Maybe all of the expandable lookups always appear at the top when something is expanded? That would probably be helpful. If visually you could see what layer you are on, if you could search for the lookup you want, but see all of the fields in that lookup instead of just results matching your search, that would also be great.
Right now it seems super clunky and pretty tedious - even searching the exact name can be a bit perilous, as it may appear multiple places and searching may lead you astray if you’re not careful on the path of the field you’re trying to add having not navigated there yourself.
