Search without created by and modified by column in a list in Sharepoint


  • Hi all,

    I am new to sharepoint, and would appreciate it a lot if someone can share some light on my problem below please.

    I have a list in sharepoint consisting columns like project ID, primary name, secondary name, etc. Of course, it comes with the default columns like created by and modified by as well, which are of the type "name".

    If I search for a particular name in the "find an item" search box, all the rows will come up if the particular name is in primary name, or secondary name, or created by, or modified by column. But I would only like the search to be based on the primary name or the secondary name, excluding created by or modified by.

    Is there anyway we can modify the search property or the column properties to achieve this please? Thanks very much for your help.
