By configuring the searchability of a profile field, you can determine which profile fields will contribute to global search results within the app. For example, if both first name and department are searchable profile fields and a user begins their search with ‘mar’, both users listed in the Marketing department and users with names beginning with these letters, such as Mark, will appear in the search results.
- In the Studio, navigate to Settings > Profile Fields.
- Click the gear wheel next to the profile field you want to make searchable in the app.
The dialog to edit the profile field opens.
- Define if you want the profile field to be searchable in the app by adjusting the toggle Make Accessible for Search.
- Click OK.
When the searchable setting is enabled, users are able to search input from this profile field, such as specific names or locations.
