View our video tutorial and showcase on Sonoran CAD's custom search type feature.
In the admin customization menu, expand the lookup types section.
There are three sections for each lookup type:
Label/Name of the lookup type
Field Mapping ID
Unique ID used to specify searchable columns in the custom record editor
Mask for the search bar - This uses the same mask system as the custom records.
Once configured, press save.
In the custom records editor, specify the
Field Mapping ID from step one on the searchable field.
If this searchable field is in your in-game database, you can also toggle the database sync mapping checkbox.
Press save, then move onto the next step.
If the search field is provided by your in-game database with database sync, this custom record column will be display in your database sync configuration for any character, license, or vehicle registration.
This will then allow you to search characters, licenses, or vehicle registrations from your in-game database based on this custom column value.
With the exception of database sync records, any existing records with this field will not be searchable.
You will need to create a new record with the custom searchable field in order to find it via custom lookup.
The lookup window will now display your new custom search types. You can now search your records (including database sync/merge) using these custom search boxes.
