What Is Einstein Search?

… It’s personal. 

With so many records in your org, it’s important to cut through the clutter when you search. That’s why Einstein Search provides search results that are tailored to the unique way your users work in Salesforce. With personalized search, your users get search results that are based on the geographical locations, industries, statuses, product areas, and people that matter most to them. For example, if Ben covers accounts in California, or Kara is interested in accounts in Connecticut, Einstein boosts records with those traits in their search results.

… It’s actionable. 

As soon as you start typing in the global search box, Einstein Search gives you instant access to record previews, actions, quick links, and suggested searches. It’s a great way to skip the clicks and get work done faster, like instantly creating an opportunity on an account. And best of all, you can use search result layouts to customize what your users can instantly access.

Einstein Search also shows the right record when we’re confident we know what you’re looking for. Just type in the search box and press enter to see a recommended result.

… It’s natural. 

With Einstein search, your users can instantly access lists of records with all the right filters directly from the global search box. For example, if a sales rep types in “my open opportunities in New York”, Einstein Search interprets those words like a human would. That means search results show every opportunity owned by your sales rep with an open status from their account in New York. It’s an awesome way to quickly access important data when you can’t find a report or don’t have time to create one.
