If your search for a record returns a large number of matches, such as a user with a common name, you can instead query all searchable fields for that record to narrow your results. In the enhanced lookup search dialog, select All Fields and enter other search terms unique to the record, such as the user’s email address.” “You can now enable enhanced lookups for opportunities. Also, enhanced lookups for both users and opportunities now support the All Fields search option.”
    • Global Tech & Resources Spring ‘14 – What might be useful to everyone? ● Auto-Saving of Records with Lookup Values Now Supports Enhanced Lookup Searches “When users are editing a record, if they enter a value in a lookup field then save the record without clicking the lookup icon Search lookup icon, Salesforce now automatically performs an enhanced lookup search if the object is configured to use enhanced lookups.” “By default, saving a record with a typed-in value in a lookup field performs a standard lookup, which queries a limited set of fields. Enhanced lookups allow you to query and search more fields per object and narrow your search results. Here’s what can result from the lookup search: ● One exact match—Assigns that value to the lookup field and automatically saves the record ● More than one possible match—Displays a drop-down list of matches for users to select from ● No matches—Displays an error”
