About this task

The list title bar includes options for searching the list. Administrators can enable text searches for any list.

There are two options for searching the list.
  • The Go to option sorts the list by the selected field and returns records where the field value is equal to or greater than the search term. For the Number field, which is a string type field, finds the records that have a number ending with the number that you enter. For example, searching a list of incidents by selecting Number and entering 4 shows records with numbers like INC0000004 and INC0000014.
  • The Search option appears when you select for text. It returns records that contain the search term in any field.
Note: In UI11, the Go to and Search options are displayed side-by-side in the header.
