2. Click on Department

3. Add Search Title

4. Mark the Available as List View checkbox

5. Under Results tab, add the following:

  • Name (no hierarchy)
  • Formula (Text) = SUBSTR({namenohierarchy},1,6)
  • Name

6. Click Save & Run

7. Go to Setup > Company > Departments

8. On the VIEW, change the Department Default View into the Saved Search recently created
