Search Option Panel

The Search Option Panel on the far-right of the screen offers additional search filtering options. Options set here will override standard search parameters.

The Search Option Panel has three sections of options: Show Only, Standard Search and Action.





Show Only

The Only Show section limits returned search results to show contacts that have a specific status, belong to a specific branch, or are limited to the specific user's contacts. Once a selection has been made, the search returns results that only match the selected option.


Options can be combined to search for contacts with a particular type of shared criteria. For instance, checking multiple boxes can produce search results only for contacts with a particular status or branch.


Field Description
By Status Isolate results to a specific status.
By Type Isolate results by the type of agency.
Branch Isolate results by the branch location.



Standard Search

The options under Standard Search provide descriptions for advanced searches. Advanced Searches must still be set, otherwise the grid will appear blank. For more information on setting Advanced Searches, see the Actions Menu - Advanced Search article. 
Double-click on the search in the Description section to run and launch a separate window with the search results. 


The Action section provides options to print or export the search results. Once the search results have been generated, the results can be sent to a printer as an image or exported into a Microsoft Excel file.  




If search results are not generating as expected, check the configuration behind the Search Option tab on the right-hand side of the page. Search Options override standard search parameters.
