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

Let’s say we want to get list of users who has not logged in into the application in this week. For that we can create a saved search UserNotLoggedInThisWeek on the Employee Business Object as depicted in the below images.



Note here that saved search UserNotLoggedInThisWeek uses system function ExecuetSavedSearch to invoke saved search Logged In this week present in Security History business object.

System function $(ExecuteSavedSearch("Frs_ops_logon_history#", " Logged In this week", "UserId")) will return a list of UserID by invoking saved search Logged In this Week for business object Security history.
