Search CRM custom module by date field

Search CRM custom module by date field

Hi folks,

I am attempting to create a deluge script that will search a custom CRM module (Publishing) for all records where the Publishing_Date field is set to specific date.

My code is as follows:

// fetch all publishing module records for the Month and Year
searchDateString = concat("Publishing:Publishing_Date:is:",TargetPublishingDate);
pubList = zoho.crm.searchRecords("Publishing",searchDateString);
info "date ";
info searchdatestring;
info "Publishing List Returned";
info pubList;

When testing this code, I get the following output.

  • Publishing:Publishing_Date:is:2020-03-01
  • Publishing List Returned
  • {"code":"INVALID_QUERY","details":{"reason":"the field is not available for search","api_name":"Publishing"},"message":"invalid query formed","status":"error"}

I do  not seem to be able to search on the date field in that module.  Is it possible to search a customer module based on a date field, or my code just broken?

Best regards,

      Welcome back everyone! The last custom function showed how to update a Contact with Product details from it's Related list in Deals.
