Question on setting up a search

Looking through the RT Essentials book and can’t find an explanation on
how to make a search based on specific Custom fields.

Can someone explain the formatting?

Thanks

Basically what I need is the ability to build searchs that other users
can use.

So for example;

Search on all Servers in Bay 5 (Bay is a custom field and 5 is one of
the option for that field).

I need to be able to same this somehow and give access to this search to
other groups.

Are the custom fields not appearing in your search builder
window? You typically just generate a search that returns the
results you wish and then just save it. 3.6 will let you add
such searches to your frontpage dashboard. If you are not
seeing the custom fields, you probably have not granted the
appropriate visibility permissions to either the queue or the
custom fields.

Cheers,
