Creating Saved Searches

Mothernode CRM lets users build powerful data searches in every listing Modules, like customers, contacts, quotes, etc. When building your search criteria, users have the option to SAVE their searches, which is particular beneficial when needing to filter complex data on a routine basis.

How to Save Searches

The following steps apply to all listing screens. The only notable difference are the field selections within the module you are searching.

  1. Click the Advanced Search to perform your search.

The example below is a basic MTD search for all Opportunities converted this month. Instead of clicking the SEARCH button to activate the query, click SAVE SEARCH. 

2. In the Save Search dialogue window, name your search (1) for future reference. Then click Save and Run (2). This will immediately filter the records based on your defined criteria and save it for future use.

3. Your Search is now available for use in the Saved Searches list.


Managing Saved Searches

The Manage Saved Searches function allows users to edit and delete their searches. Administrators can create popular searches and share them with their team.

2. The Managed Saved Searches screen will open. Users have the following options:

  1. You can edit the name of the existing search.
  2. You can set the search to be your default filter each time you access the module listing screen.
