SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  • For this article purpose, let's use as example a field "ZLast Contacted" (ZLast Contacted represents the Extension Field name).
  1. Go to the Customers work center.
  2. Select the Accounts view.
  3. On the Account list, see that the field ZLast Contacted is populated for Account ID XYZ (XYZ represents the Account ID). It shows date DD.MM.YY (this represents a Data).
  4. On the Basic Search, type in DD.MM.YY.
  5. No records found.


Extension Fields of datatype = 'Time', 'Date', or 'DateTime' are not enabled for Basic Search.


If you have the need to use such fields in basic search urgently you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
