Unable to search using custom fields in contacts module


I’m new to SuiteCRM and I’m still finding my way through it all. I’ve just encountered an unexpected ‘feature’ where, if I create custom fields as dropdown lists in the contacts module, I’m unable to search for them on either the basic or advanced search screens. I can change the layout so the fields are displayed on the search screen but selecting any of the values to search for always yields “no results”.

Am I missing something…?

What version are you using?

Version 7.7.7
Sugar Version 6.5.24 (Build 509)

This was a bug with the 7.7.7 release. If you upgrade to 7.7.8 this issue should be resolved.

I’ve now upgraded and you are right, it is now working correctly!
