Find the Data You Need in a Jiffy with List View Search

Use the new search bar to search the field data in your list views and find the records you need in record time.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience for Essential, Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: The list view search bar appears next to the List View Controls icon. Type in your query to get started. For a productivity boost, use the keyboard shortcut g+f to select the search bar. You can also add the search bar to the List View component in Lightning App Builder.


Certain fields aren’t searchable, depending on the object. You can still filter or sort on those fields. A tooltip appears when you select the search bar, showing which fields aren’t searchable. Be sure to check the tooltip if you aren’t getting the search results that you’re expecting. Generally, formula fields, lookup fields, and picklists aren’t searchable. All searchable fields are queried, even if the corresponding columns aren’t visible in the list view. Searching a “recently viewed” list doesn’t show results in the recently viewed order.
