Thank you for response! Your suggestion makes the field visible on Search page, however, I am looking for a way to make the field required, meaning if I press Search button with no field defined, I will get the PPM native message that required field must be populated before proceding.
I think the only way to do that is to change JSP file. But did anyone do that before?
As part of a performance improvement initiative, we are tunning up the PPM instance to improve user experiance. We looked over Performance Reports and found that often our users click the Search button with no criteria provided - this their waiting time for list of projects can be very long. So, we want to force our users to provide at least some criteria for search.
