With the federated search feature, you can search multiple information resources simultaneously using a keyword or full name of a company or contact. You can view InsideView’s search results in a single integrated list, which is listed as the External Results in Salesforce CRM.  

Note: The federated search feature is supported only in Salesforce CRM's Lightning Edition.


The federated search feature allows you to view records from Salesforce and InsideView databases' simultaneously, saving time and hassle. 

Currently, this feature is available only in: Salesforce Enterprise, Professional, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

In the search results page, you can go directly to the Account or Contact Detail page by clicking the View link under the Display URL.

In addition to that, you can click on the Title of an Account or a Contact in the External Results, to navigate to the Detail page which has links to view more information in the Salesforce Lightning Edition.
