Global Search Made Easy

Posted by CuriousRubik on 01 Sep, 2015

Global Search in NetSuite has always been easy but to make it much easier and precise we can use the following options:

• Use search prefixes: We can narrow the search to records of one type by adding a prefix to the search string, it is made up of some of the letters of the record plus a ‘:’ or ‘^’ followed by the keyword.

• List of global search prefixes are:


• Search for multiple text strings at once. We can use OR as a separator between the keywords. In order to be recognized as a Separator ‘OR’ must be used as an Upper Case Letter.

•To treat each word as a spate keyword and to return exact matches per keyword we can also use ‘Space or Hyphen’ between words.

•To make a search in the ‘Inactive’ records use ‘+’ to the keywords.

•To Search for a specific dashboard add prefix “dash” followed by the keyword

•To search for the exact matches use Quotations (“) or Backslash (\)
