Lookup Search for all fields in Salesforce

By | December 12, 2013

The Winter’14 release of Salesforce provides some new features and enhancements. One of them is the enhanced search on lookups. In the Summer’13 version of Salesforce, it was only possible to search something using the name field. The lookup search window in Summer’13 is as shown below –lookup13

New Stuff:  Set the click event of button on Enter in Visualforce page

As can be seen above, this lookup field can be used to search the records only using the name field of that particular object. This limitation has been removed in the latest release of Salesforce. The search feature in the lookup window now has the option to either search by the name field (like the old lookup) or by using all the fields. The lookup window in the Winter’14 release is as shown below –lookup14

The user can now select the “All Fields” radio button and search for records that match the search criteria for all the fields in that object. The only criterion to use this feature is to have the enhanced lookups enabled.
