You can choose to have the Account attribute added to the Advanced Search window.

  • Search Privilege: You can set the Privileges on who can search the record with the Account attribute.

Note: You can set the privileges for the employees from the Employees App.

  • Mandatory: On enabling mandatory, you can initiate an advanced search only if the value is given for Account attribute.
  • Assign Set: If the mandatory is enabled, you will be prompted to assign when it is mandatory. You can set the assign set to be either Always or Mutually Exclusive.
Mandatory Search

  • When the Assign set is added as Always, the account attribute will be marked as Mandatory irrespective of the presence or absence of values in other attributes of the search.
  • When the Assign set is added as Mutually Exclusive, the account attribute will be marked as Mandatory only if there are values in the selected attributes of the records.


You can decide who can access the Account attribute from the Security section of the Inspector tab. You can configure who has the privilege to view, create, and edit this field. The privileges for the Employees are set from the Employees App.
