Ad-Hoc Search

This article applies to:Aria Crescendo


You can search for accounts on an ad-hoc basis, rather than by performing a specific criteria search. The Search By field that is selected by default on the Ad-Hoc Search screen is determined by the Account Ad-Hoc Search Default "Search By" Field system setting.

When you search based on text fields, you can find information using a partial text search and case-insensitive search criteria. When you search based on number fields, you can search for only an exact match.

​For example, you can search based on the text field Account Contact Last Name and enter “MA” or “MAR” to find an account holder with the last name “Marist”. You can search based on the field Account Number and enter “1234567” to find the customer with that account number. If you enter “12”, you do not find the customer whose account number contains “12”.
