When using fields in search, don’t include a space in between the field and the search term, and use quotation marks to search for a field with multiple words.

You can also search for multiple fields at once using boolean operators like AND, OR, and NOT, as well as parentheses for grouping search clauses. Note that these will only work when using the searchable text fields / operators as defined in the table above.  See below for examples:

  • tags:”Recruiting Lunch” AND sources:LinkedIn
  • tag:Favorites OR tags:”Warm Prospect”
  • (location:Orlando AND org:Microsoft) NOT tag:”Do not contact”
