Can we filter the search to show the results of only one field in the particular object in salesforce global search ?

Thanks

I don't think you can automatically filter by something every time search is run. But there's something similar that might help you.

Click that "Customize" button and you'll be able to add runtime filters. I've added 2.

  • Use the sidebar in the search results page to "focus" on Account results, it should appear. You can also access same menu from Setup -> Customize -> Accounts -> Search layouts -> Search filter fields. If you don't see that menu option in setup - check if you have "Customize Application" permission (help.salesforce.com/htviewhelpdoc?id=customize_searchlayout.htm)

  • Similarly for custom object it'll be one of related lists in the custom object's setup page.
