You can configure the fields to search in the Global Search administration area. Not sure how well date searching works; I haven't had much luck with it, but that could be me.
But instead of searching, I would probably recommend setting up a report instead, with date options in it, because usually you want to see "all incidents opened between Date A and Date B" or something like that.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for your reply..
yeah..I got that .. I knew that it can be done by a report.. but I am trying to make a field searchable..
I already tried in Global Search Settings, but there we are specifying just the datasource we should want to search from when we type a search keyword. The fields we specify there are for the display fields to be displayed in the "global search" when some search criteria matches with that datasource. I hope I am right. Pls correct me if I am wrong.
Can u pls suggest on how to make a field searchable??
Thanks for looking into this..
Yeah, quickview seems to be the best option, reports the other option.
Other option is I created a field "OpenedDate", a formula field that contains only the date portion of the actual "OpenedDate" datetime field. I added that field to the IncidentList View and I was able to apply GroupBy "Opened Date" for all the incidents.
I also used the quick view.That solves the purpose.
But, is there some way that we can make a field searchable on some object?
Still, the same question!!!
