Search object

Dear all,

is it possible to display the field label instead of field name using a search object ?

When I click on the arrow, I can see all the fields name; I need to display the field label, for the user it's much more useful and comfortable

Thanks in advance for your help

Re: Search object

No, Search object can only pull the available metadata names in the application. Please try to rename the fields aligned with Business user requirements in Load script so that you can use them in the search object. I hope this helps.

Re: Search object

If you want to search just one field, you can rename the text in the search object (no field name). Isn't the solution, but it's something.

Hi, currently it is not possible.

There are some ideais that you can support so we have it in the future:




As a workaround as mentioned by Romina, you could use =GetCurrentSelections() in a text box and also use replace to 'correct' field names into labels.

Hope it helps,
