Searching for contacts will automatically retrieve any contacts where the target contact meets any of the following criteria:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Company Name
  • Custom Field Value
  • Tag Name

Additional Search Options for Custom Fields

Custom Fields have both a Name and a Value. By default, the search will return any contacts Name or Value contains the text you're searching for. You can optionally restrict the search to contacts that have a Custom Field with a specific name by adding a ':' at the end of your search.

"fakefield2:" will only return contacts which have a Custom Field of "fakefield2" and have any value associated with that custom field.

You can further restrict this search by providing a specific value for that field.


This search will return contacts whose Custom Fields match both the field name of "fakefield2" and the field value of "customdata37", as shown below.

NOTE: These searches look for any contacts which contain this text. Thus, a search for "fakefield2:customdata" would return any contacts with a Custom Field with the name "fakefield" and a value that begins with "customdata".
