Enable or disable advanced find feature on attributes

Did you know that you can set each attribute of each entity to be able for advanced find or not?

By doing this you can specify which fields the users can search on. That means that all the fields which you do not use in your CRM system can be removed from the list to make using the advanced find easier.

So how do you do this? Just:
- go to system
- customizations
- customize entities
- select any entity
- go to the tab attributes
- select any attribute
- swich the flag 'Searchable'

Hm? You dont have that flag? Go get it at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912061/EN-US/

Good luck!

Can we set this property dynamicly according to the logged user ?

This is a system wide setting. It cannot be set by the logged on user.

this is great but it does not remove it from the list of available columns when you are editing the columns for the results of your advanced finds. Do you (or anyone else) know of a way to do this? Thanks!

I agree that it's a great feature but it still doesn't hide the fields from the Advanced Find button >> Drop down boxes. Ronald or Michele, did you ever find a way to do perfom that sort of feature?

As of this moment, there is no (known) way of hiding these columns.
