See the Related Account When You Search for Contacts or Opportunities

Looking for a contact or opportunity but not sure which account it belongs to? Now when your sales team searches, they see the related account in instant results and recent items. And best of all, the related account is searchable, so it's easier to find the right record fast.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience, and all editions except Database.com.

Why: Typically, an object’s search results layout determines which fields appear as the secondary field. For contacts and opportunities, the related account is always the secondary field because it’s a key piece of information.

When you start typing, any matching results show the related account.
