Add "County" to Lookup Menu (top)

One of our users always has to do lookups by county (always different county for each lookup). Is there a way to add "County" to the Lookup menu? I know how to add items to the menus, but I can't seem to find a way to bring up the lookup dialog box with county already selected as the search field.

 

I need it to function like "City", "State", "Zip", or any of the preset fields in the Lookup top menu, but for county.

 

Let me know if you need me to explain what I am looking for a little better. Thanks in advance.

Try right clicking on the county field and select the lookup.

I know you can right-click the field. Is there a way to add it to the top menu?

The short answer is No. The question is why? Right clicking on the field is faster and requires less clicks. You can make a feature request for possible inclusion in a future version of the ACT! program.

Yes Country needs to be an option in the Lookup menu. You aren't necessarily in a contact view when you want to lookup by Country
