Using filters to find records can be a fast alternative to the Advanced search feature.
How to find your artwork or contact filters
Options to filter your artworks or contacts will appear on the right-hand side of your database browse screen when clicking on the search box.
When 'Filter results' appears, you will be able to search your predefined filters (you can add multiple filters to one search).
Customise and search using your filter options
You are able to add new filters, remove unused ones and reorder them to your preference.
To add new filters, scroll to 'Customise', search for your intended filter or use the drop down menu to find it in the list, then click 'Add field'. Then, drag them into position.
Remove fields from your filter options
Select the dropdown button besides the field you would like to remove from your filter list and select 'Remove'.
Using the search box
Further refine your filtered search
On top of any filters applied to the records you are looking at, you can also further refine your search by manually typing into the search box.
The search box can be inputted with multiple search terms, separated by commas. For example, if you have a list of specific artwork stock numbers or contact email addresses you wish to find, add each to the search bar like this: 'AA002, AA301, BB3199'; or, 'email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com'.
You can search over 100 separate specific items this way as long as they are formatted correctly.
Clear all applied filters

When to use Advanced searches
As the name suggests, Advanced searches allow for more detailed searches of your data, especially when using 'Expert mode'. Searches made through the Advanced search feature can also be saved for further efficiency in the future.
