Global Search filters per object

Accounts & Contacts

We have a need to suppress certain records from search results.

Here's a scenario:
An account get's marked as "No Longer In Business" because we want to indicate that they shouldn't be used ut we don't want to delete the account because we want to keep the historical data.

When we do a search, that account shows up in the search results. No imagine you have hundreds of accounts that are marked this way. They start to clutter the search results making it harder to find the account you want to use.

It would be better if we could globally add a filter to the account search that filters out the "No Longer In Business" accounts whenever anybody does a search. If they want to get to those records, they can click a link that says "Show All Records" similar to how the new Lookup Filters work.
