Hello @DebbiO3390,

 

Thank you for this feedback! When doing the Advanced Search you want to use our 'First Name' field or 'Last Name' field if those are what you filled out for your Contacts, we do not have just a 'Name' field. Could that be a custom field you have set up in the account? What are the searches you're trying? Does it work when using 'First Name' or 'Last Name'?
