Add New Fields To The Type To Filter Search Form To Find Hard To Find Data

The Type To Filter search option is super useful, but you are not limited to just the default fields that show up on the list page. If you want to search based on additional fields, then all you need to do is add them to the search criteria and then start searching.

No data is able to hide from you now.

How To Do It…

If you want to filter on a field that does not show up by default in the combo box to the right of the Type to Filter field, just click on the More option at the bottom of the list.

This will open up the Select Fields dialog box that will show you all of the tables that are related to the list page that you are currently in.

If you expand out the tables in the Select Fields dialog box, then you can select any additional field and then click the Add button.

After you have added all of the additional search fields, then just close the form.

How It Works…

When you return to the list page, you will see all of the additional search fields have been added to the list page, and can also now be selected from the field drop down selector.

All you have to do in order to filter out based on the new fields is type in your search value, and the list page will be filtered.

Isn’t that too cool?
