This article shows users how to search records in Salesforce and how to manage the Search Page.

Searching Records

At the top of the interface is a global search function that has the capability to search all records in the database. Type in a string of text and click Search to retrieve all records in the system that contain that string of text.

An administrator can configure search settings to determine which data objects and fields will be searched.

Search Page

The search page provides a structured layout of all records that contain the string of text that has been entered.

  • On the left you can select to filter records by specific data objects.
  • In the main body of the page you can see lists of records grouped by data objects based on your search results.
