Search for missing D/T matrix challenge combination

+1 vote
Hello, in the challenge caches section we can already see what D/T combination we have/are missing. Is it possible to implement the search for those combination missing for challenge caches?

Thank you.

Thank you for the link, I am aware of this search but I can't see how I can search only challenge caches? If I am missing how to filter them, could you please point me to such filter?
Ah, sorry. Then I misunderstood your question. I didn't realize you wanted to fill your D/T matrix with just challenge caches.

you can use advanced search on where you filtered cache name contained challenge and choose DT. Unfortunately it working only for one combination, column, row in DT or neighbor one. 

For example geocaches contained challenge in name, 10000 km around Prague with D 4-5 and T4-5.

Second option I found is to use live map in project-gc where you can use the same filters as on I didn't found solution to find all DT combinations missing at once.

Thank you, when I am looking for the specific challenge caches, I am already using the first option you mentioned and it is working just fine, but as you wrote it has its limits, that is why I was wondering about the DT missing search option. :)

If it's one (or a few) specific rating(s), the Map of Challenges tool allows you to filter on D/T. Then you can at least make a list per country.

That is true, but you still need to look at the missing combinations and choosing them one by one. I was also thinking that I would add my own filter to the D/T search with the name challenge but I realized I cannot create search with name/word... :( I am grateful that I can search the single combinations but complex search would make my life easier. :)
