Workaround for searching in long text field?

We have a data dump that throws all of our error logs into a custom Salesforce object. The ‘message’ field on the object is a long text field with references to record IDs or external system IDs. I’d like to search these fields for those IDs, but it appears the search function cannot handle long text fields. Has anyone figured out a workaround by any chance?

Hello Amy,

If you enable SOSL search on the search options and select “Search All Text Fields”, the table search should return results from the long text area fields as well.

Here is a link to Skuid docs discussing the search properties in a table:

Hope this helps, please let us know if you have any additional questions!
