This article describes how to change the labels of PowerSearch entity tabs and menus.
The entity tabs and menus can be individually named.
With only a few steps, you will manage to do it.
1) Change tab labels
When starting the program the entity plural names are used for the tab labels:
Figure 1: The entity plural names
For example, if you want to change the label “Accounts” to “Companies”, but you don’t want to change the entity in the background.
Then you have to use the “Open Config” button to open the Power Search configuration:
Figure 2: “Open Config” button
In the config, hit on “Open Search Configuration” on the “Configuration” tab
Figure 3: “Configuration” tab
Open the search configuration for this entity (in this case Account)

Look for the field on the “Additional Information” tab
Figure 5: Additional Information
Change the inner text of the “dn” node for the id “1033” to “Companies” (1033 is the language code for English):
Figure 6: Changing the display name
Save the configuration. After reloading PowerSearch the tab label will be changed:

Please note: If you have more than one search configuration for the same entity (in this case account), this has to be done for all of them:

2) Change the menu label
If you have multiple search configurations for the same entity, a drop-down menu will allow to select between them (similar as you have multiple views in Dynamics 365).
This section shows how to change the label of such menu entries.
In this example 4 account searches exists and the “Active Accounts” menu label should be changed.
Figure 9: Active Accounts
Open the “PowerSearch search configurations” grid as described in the first section.
Figure 10: Active PowerSearch Config
Open the fitting search configuration. In this case the “account” search with the menu display name “Active Accounts”

Change the “Menu Display Name” in the “General” tab:

Save the config record and reload PowerSearch.
