cross application search

    I am having trouble in a child app placing a search bar on the default dashboard to search a table in the part app. It says I dont have access to the information, even thought the cross-app setting are set to admin and my role is admin. 

    Any thoughts/help?

    Thanks,

    Cross app setting only apply to cross app relationships, not searching.

    So there is no way to search a table's fields on the parent app??

    Do you have access to the data in the other app?  I guess the Parent app of the cross app relationship?

    I think I'm not understanding the ask here.  if you want to have a button to search another app, you can make a button to land the user on a dashboard of the Parent app, or else make an <ask the user> report and last the user on that report via a URL link.

    I figured it out. Problem was I wasn't entirely sure what I was needing. I created a formula field on the child app's table that serialized info about the parent app's table, then I used that field in the child app's dashboard search in order to limit local records. 

    Thanks for your replies.
