Searching Custom Fields

Hey CM,

I have noticed that when you go into your Subscriber list and search all subscribers, it does not search on data entered into custom fields. For example, my client puts Customer Numbers in a custom field, and when searching that customer number no results found.

I know i can replace name with Company Name, there fore we can just search company name to find a record but is there any plans to open the search feature to all data saved under each subscriber?

HI Toolie, thanks for the great suggestion - I'll most certainly add your vote for this internally. Agree, searching custom fields would be very useful!

In the meantime, you may be able to use segments to search custom fields - for example, you could create a segment for 'Customer Number' Equals '12345', then export the results. This certainly isn't ideal, but an option in the meantime.
