Quickfind with Custom Data – Configuration and Rules
To do this, when you are creating / editing custom data fields, make sure to select the ‘Searchable’ flag option.
Note that currently, only the following data types can be set as searchable in Quickfind:
- Short Text
- List (not multiple-level lists)
You can specify up to two characters, but they must be unique in the system. They are case insensitive, so it does not matter whether you / the end users enter in upper or lower case when using.
Note that the following short codes are reserved for standard system usage and therefore cannot be entered here:
- r: work item reference number
- ‘RE:’ and ‘FW:’ (as this may impact searching against titles which come from emails subjects)
- Further shortcodes are reserved for future system usage: T, S, SD, DD, ED, AU, OU and RD.
Click ‘OK’ to save changes.
You are able to set one of the short codes in the list to be your default short code. If a short code is selected, this will mean that you will not have to input the prefix (e.g. ‘p:’ before the search text).
