Search across every relevant record
Quick view of recent rows and searches
Inline suggestionsAs you start entering text, you’ll see suggested results that help minimize keystrokes and simplify page navigation. With suggestions, you can access your information quickly by using minimal keystrokes even when the search term is misspelled by a character. Text that’s highlighted in bold in the suggestions shows the term that was matched. Here are some of advanced features you can exploit:
Using keywords can “boost” your search for information. Entering a record type to boost search results is an easy way to indicate which results you prefer. For example, searching for Susan Adatum indicates that you’re looking for a contact Susan related to the account Adatum.
Natural language understanding
Search has a better understanding of terms that are used to indicated intent. Some examples include:
- Searching for open phone calls will show phone call activity records that have the status open.
- Searching for contact missing email will show contacts who have an empty email address field, rather than treating missing as a keyword.
- Spelling correction. Search forgives common spelling mistakes. For example, when you search for william conatc, search results will include the contact record with the name William, even though the word contact was misspelled.
Synonyms, acronyms, and abbreviations
With support for common abbreviations and synonyms, you can search for your information the way you remember it, not necessarily the way it’s stored. Some examples include:
- Common name variations like Bob/Robert are matched with either search term.
- A search term that uses an abbreviation like active accts will be interpreted semantically as “active accounts.”
The power of common knowledge
Search can understand popular locations, date, time, holidays, and numbers. For example, a search for account in WA will generate results for accounts located in Washington state.
Smart search learning
And it learns! As you go it seeks affirmation the result set helped and refines using a power AI engine behind the scenes, each time learning and improving.
