The following is an example of using this function in a saved search.

To get a list of users who have not logged into the application this week, a UserNotLoggedInThisWeek saved search can be created on the Employee business object as shown below.

The UserNotLoggedInThisWeek saved search uses the ExecuteSavedSearch system function to invoke the Logged In This Week saved search in the Security History business object. The $(ExecuteSavedSearch("Frs_ops_logon_history#", " Logged In this week", "UserId")) system function will return a list of UserIDs by invoking the Logged In this Week saved search for the Security History business object.
