Sometimes a different type of search that provides more information can be a lot more useful than just a simple search.

Take a look at the ‘Entity Locator’, available by going to ‘View->Entity Locator’.

EntityLocator

The Entity Locator consists of sortable columns of information. Additional columns can be added by clicking on the plus icon in the top right of the Locator, allowing for a custom view.

columnSelector

Each column also has quite a few options available by clicking the dimple icon or right clicking on the column header. Several options are shown in the image below, including the ability to ‘Freeze Columns’ (similar to the ability in spreadsheet applications).

In the image below, the first two columns are frozen and the other columns can be scrolled horizontally while still seeing the frozen columns.
