SPO searchable dropdown list

Occasional Contributor

Dear Gurus,


Thank you for reading the post.


I have a list with applicants. In the beginning the list will probably only contain a few names, but in time it should have thousands of names: lst_names.


I have another column, in a different list named lst_results, that fetches the names from lst_names. As I see things at the moment the user has to scroll down the list to find the right name. If I end up with thousands of names, the user will have to scroll down a long list to get the right name. Is there a way to have a searchable dropdown list as it was in SP13?


Thank you very much!
