Offline Search Search Fields

This setting allows you to reduce the number of items being searched by specifying which columns are searched. By default, all text-based fields (including managed metadata) will be searched against. Up to a maximum of 20 columns may be specified.


  • To specify which SharePoint columns the search runs against, list the SharePoint column names separated by a semicolon (;)
  • The supported column types are: Managed Metadata, Choice, Text, Multiline Text
  • If this key is not present, all text-based fields listed in the supported column types above will be searched
