Change indexed field for quick search on contact entity RRS feed

  • Question

  • We would like to add the ability to search a second field in the contact entity under quick search (currently it is set to fullname only). Although we are able to add new filtered views, each still only allows for searching on the one field. Is it possible to add the ability to search multiple fields in quick searches?

  • Hi John,

    Yes.  You can go into customizations, select the entity, then under forms and views, select 'Quick Find' view.  In this view you can select both 'view columns' and 'Find columns'.  The Find columns will be the fields in which you will be searching at the same time from the quick find box.
