I couldn't find the Individual Column Search feature in metronic8 which existed in previous versions of metronic.
Any way to use this feature or any alternative in metronic8?
At the moment this feature is not available in Metronic 8. We will implement this feature for Metronic 8 with Datatables.net plugin
Thanks for your reply. Do you have a timeline for your next release?
Another question, In case of purchasing the theme, do I have the chance to get the updates included in the next release when this feature is implemented?
Yes, absolutely. All future updates will be available for free per license. Each license is limited to one deployment and you can reuse the same code for different deployments you will need a separate license.
