This feature is enabled by role within System Security Permissions on the Global Settings page.

  • When Global Search is enabled, you can check to ensure that it is working on your system as it should appear under the Tools heading on the main menu. 


  • This feature does not search for values in Smart Folders.
  • The Global Search function is useful if you are attaching Notes to any records and particularly if you use notes as a form of annotations against an application. Global Search will allow you to search notes on a contact record, or a UTA on any level, depending on the permissions set; the notes can then be collected and printed for record-keeping.
