    Is there a way to see the entire list of contacts in the contact search center? Is there a wildcard character or something like that as there is in SQL Server manager?


    Resolution

     

    The short answer is "Yes" but there are some conditions in doing so. First, you can use a wildcard/special character in the form of a percent symbol (%) in the contact search center, which will call all to be displayed if the display limit doesn't restrict the total number to be displayed. 

    To see this display limit in an example, please do the following:
    1. Log into GoldMine as a master user
    2. Go to Tools>>Configure>>System Settings>>Display
    3. Verify the number that it is set for the setting: "Maximum records shown in contact search center, activity list, contact list, and contact record tabs. Note: More records may be displayed after user interaction with the list"
    4. Now set this to a small number (for this test only) such as "15"

    5. Open the Contact Search Center and select "Company", "Begins With" and type a percent symbol (%)

    Result:
    Even though you have many more contacts in GoldMine, you are limited to 15


    Now to adjust the display limit so the entire list is displayed, you will just need to set the display limit to a number higher than the total number of contacts you have in your database:
    1. Close your contact search center (if it is still opened)
    2. Log into GoldMine as a master user
    3. Go to Tools>>Configure>>System Settings>>Display
    4. Verify the number that it is set for the setting: "Maximum records shown in contact search center, activity list, contact list, and contact record tabs. Note: More records may be displayed after user interaction with the list"
    5. Now set this to a small number (for this test only) such as "15000"
    6. Open the Contact Search Center and select "Company", "Begins With" and type a percent symbol (%)
