Using Indexed Custom Fields
To optimize the performance of Oracle CRM On Demand, you can use custom fields that have been optimized for specific record types. These optimized fields, which are called indexed custom fields, are special fields that improve the response time during a search or when sorting a particular list. Indexed custom fields are preconfigured in the Oracle CRM On Demand database. You can change the labels on the indexed custom fields, but you cannot change the integration tags.
NOTE: You can choose to migrate your data from a custom field to an indexed custom field to increase the performance of lists for users. To migrate the existing data to the available record types, use the export and import functionality of Oracle CRM On Demand or Web services. For more information about exporting and importing data, see Import and Export Tools. For more information about Web services, see Web Services Integration.
