Saved Searches

Add New / View / Rename / Where They Can Be Used

IMPORTANT:

A saved search belongs to the administrator that saved it and to the menu option in which it was created. Your own saved searches are not available to other administrators or in other menu options.

  • If you build a search at the enterprise level, it will only be available to you at the enterprise level.
