Select a Module to Search– A list of Suite modules that can be searched.
Select a Saved Search – An indication that a search that was previously saved can be accessed. Select a search from the dropdown list.
Create a Search – An indication that a new search is being created. Select the type of search to be conducted (select an entity type if the Entities module is selected).
Add or modify search conditions table – Allows you to create the criteria by which the records will be searched.
And/Or – An indication of the operator being used between rows of criteria. An AND operator means that all criteria applies. An OR operator means that either one row of criteria or the next row of criteria apply.
Tab/Page – The name of the tab within the module that contains the field that will be used to narrow the search.
Field – The name of the field that will be used to narrow the search.
Operator – The operator (such as Contains, Starts with, Equals) used to constrain the selected field.
