How to turn off “Recently Viewed” in Standard Lookup?
|Knowledge Article Number||000205628|
|Description||Some customers have business requirement to have Standard Lookup return records without a string string/query rather than display “Recently Viewed”. If a tab does not exist, the standard lookup will display records without a search string. As a caveat, if you remove tab, end users would not be able access that object via tabs. If a Salesforce tab exists for a Standard Lookup object, the lookup behavior will always display “Recently Viewed”.
