#2 Global Search a Custom Field – Have you ever wanted to have the global search feature in NetSuite index a custom field, so that you can include this field in the global search for the records that the global search is searching on? With NetSuite, v.2009.1, you can now configure custom fields to be indexed for the global search feature.

  1. Any custom fields indexed by global search may take NetSuite a few minutes to index. Do not expect the custom field to be indexed immediately.
  2. There are some custom field types that NetSuite does not support for indexing with global search: checkbox, date, document, image, list/record, multi-select, password, rich text, and time of day.
