How to turn on the Global Search to search of any custom or standard fields?

I have done the following so far:

 Setup --> Customize --> Search --> Search Settings. 
          (selected my custom object for both "Enhanced Lookups" "Lookup Auto-Completion"

Also I have tried to Search on employee__c Owner field.

Modify Search Layouts of employee__c object:

employee__c -> Search Layouts ->  Edit layout

And selected fields column

But still could not able to search on the field I have added which is "Start_Date__c"

  • You might consider using reports or list views to find these records instead? – Adrian Larson Jul 18 '16 at 21:05

Can you make sure you have a tab created for your object. Please see this link: Searchable Fields

Also, You need to make the custom field as "External Id". Follow this blog by Jeff Douglous for detailed information: Working with External Id fields
