  • Hello Matheus,

    Thank you for your reply.

    this phone number came from standard Account "Phone" field I'm only change Label to "Parent Phone/Mobile".

    I'm added this field into advanced search already but still can't search by phone number from search field on the top-right field.

    but if I'm search by input phone number into advanced search field, C4C can search by phone number correctly.

    My customer really need to search by phone number from top-right field or Enterprise Search field only.

    Please help.

    Thank you so much.

  • Hello Peerayut,

    The basic search has its base on the fields present in the advanced search.

    This means that if you do not have the field 'Parent Phone/Mobile' in the advanced search (click on the filter icon), it will not find any results.

    Try adding this field there via adaptation mode and search again. Let us know if it worked or not.

  • Hello Peerayut,
    I apologize for not checking this correctly. I saw here that actually the Phone number in enterprise search is not yet supported for Account.
    The ones supported are: Account ID, External ID, Account name, City, Owner Name, Main Contact person name.

    The reason for not enabling this in Standard is the performance degradation added, as not all customers will use the phone number in order to search for accounts.

    This field may be considered to be added to enterprise search in future releases, however, as of now there is no concrete information on the release version.

    I hope this helped.

    Dear Peerayut,

    The Account search paramerters are currently defined by:

    - Internal ID
    - BusinessPartnerFormattedName (Description of the Account)
    - CityName
    - PostalCode
    - Country
    - RemoteObjectID (Related to Web Services)

    As a workaround you could use the phone field within the advanced search section.

    Otherwise, we would kindly ask you to post this request on our Idea Place page (
