Searches of customer information like name and address, and of interaction information like subject or body text are 'starts-with' searches, meaning that each of the fields that you are allowed to search for words or strings, are searched for words that start with the keywords that you enter in the Quick Search field.

Searches of information that has been customized by your administrator are 'equals' searches, meaning that the search looks for exact matches with what you enter. Ask your administrator about custom information.

Text search is:

  • Not case sensitive. TEXT, Text, text, and teXt are all treated as the same word.
  • Searchable as either a group of individual words or as sentences.
    • Put a group of words in double quotes to search for a specific sentence. Searching for "Find me" returns all interactions that contain the exact match for the phrase 'Find me'.
    • Otherwise, each word is treated as a separate search condition. Searching for Find me returns all interactions that contain one word that starts with Find and one word that starts with me.

Tip

Your administrator decides what conditions you are allowed to search on, so your Interaction Search view might not exactly match the screen shots and video.

This is what the Advanced Search view looks like:
