Search seems limited only to name column within linked record fields


#1

Question about the search bar to select a certain record in linked record fields. The search only seems to work for the name field as far as I can tell. Is there a way to have it search all fields or columns or settings to select which columns it searches? I’m a new user and can’t seem to find any documentation on this. Thank you!

Hi - I completely agree this would be a very useful feature - but there is a work around…

If you make the linked record’s Name column a calculated field you can add together various columns to make searching more useful. I appreciate that for other reasons this may not be desirable but it works.

Thanks @Julian_Kirkness this is a great hack to try for now. The search it itself is very limited, I need the more advanced search functionality of the search block. Is there a a way you know of to get the search block functionality within the linked record field selection?
