About Keyword Search
You can use two types of search in Oracle CRM On Demand: targeted search and keyword search. Your company administrator determines which type of search is used by default for your company, by selecting the search type on the company profile page. Targeted search is the recommended search type. For more information about targeted search, see About Targeted Search.
You can use keyword search in several places in Oracle CRM On Demand, as follows:
NOTE: Searches using the Quick Filter fields in List pages are always targeted searches, even if keyword search is selected as the default search type for your company.
If your company administrator selects keyword search as the search type for your company, you see only one search field in the Search section in the Action bar and in Lookup windows. A keyword search searches certain fields to find matches to the text that you enter in the search field. It displays all records where the text string you entered is found in any of the searched fields, which is equivalent to using an OR condition in the default fields. For example, in a keyword search of service request records, the Service Number field and the Subject field are searched. If you enter the value 1234 in the Search field in the Action bar, the records displayed include the following:
Some record types do not support keyword search. For a list of the record types that support keyword search and for details about the fields that are searched for each record type in a keyword search, see Default Search Fields for Keyword Search.
