  3. Run an Advanced Search and attempt to add the Custom Field created in Step 1

The Favorite Insect field is NOT offered as an option…although it should be.


It might be that the field was not added to the library (first checkbox when creating). In that case, this is not a bug but intentional behavior (for now).


Hi @Stephanie_Oberg, thanks for flagging this!

Could you please confirm, as mentioned by @Bastien_Siebman, if this field was added to the Org library? :slight_smile:

No, this is not a Global Field. I didn’t realize the limitation and also didn’t find it anywhere in the help docs. Thanks for letting me know.
