Searching existing records with link field

When I’m searching for an existing record with a linked field, the search field only searches the primary field (in my case it is an autonumber).

Is there any way to search across other fields as well? For example I have another field that is a text field and contains the name of the request.

Unfortunately, no. :frowning: You should definitely add this as a feature request in the #show-and-tell:product-suggestions category.

In the meantime, your only workaround is to create a formula field as your primary field that contains all the different fields that you would ever want to search on in the linked record field.

You can move your autonumber field to become another field, and that field can become a part of your new formula field.
