Using custom search forms

You can use custom search forms to search on criteria that are not in the Set Search Criteria window. The fields available depend on how the form has been designed for your organisation.

You can restrict results by using:

  • only the criteria in the custom search form
  • criteria in both the custom search form and the Set Search Criteria window.

    Note: Custom search forms are only available for modules they have been explicitly created for. If you do not see a button on the Set Search Criteria window, then no custom search form exists for this module at your organisation. See Designing user search forms in the System maintenance manual.

To use a custom search form:

  1. Click .
    The Custom Search window appears.
  2. Type information into the fields.
  3. Click .
    The Set Search Criteria window is displayed.
  4. If you want to further restrict the results, type information in the fields.
  5. Click .
    The results are returned in the Selector grid.
