Consider an example of Company Find screen in which we need to change the Cursor location to Company Name field. Follow the below mentioned steps to achieve this.
1) Login into Sage CRM.
2) Navigate to Administration | Customization |Company Entity.
3) Select Screens Tab.
4) Select CompanySearchBox from the list of screens.
5) Copy and Paste below code in the Custom Content section.
if (window.addEventListener)
window.addEventListener(“load”, DefaultCursor, false);
else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent(“onload”, DefaultCursor);
function DefaultCursor()
6) Click on Save button.
Once this is done, navigate to find Company screen and you will observe that the Cursor location has been placed as default to Company Name as shown below.
Same manipulation can be configured for other entity find screens. You just need to change the field name as per requirement.
