Saved Searches


Frequently used search criteria can be saved along with search text by giving the search criteria a meaningful name. These names appear in the left tree view panel of the Search tab.  You can also execute a saved search by selecting it from the Saved Search drop down menu as show in screen shot below.




Simply clicking on these names will perform a real time search and bring back result based on the saved search criteria and search text.


Docsvault provides few predefined "Saved Search" items:


Checked Out: Searches for documents that are currently checked out

Modified within 15 days: Searches for files modified within last 15 days

Created Today: Searches for files created today

Created Yesterday: Searches for files created yesterday

Created within week: Searches for files created in last 7 days

Modified within week: Searches for files modified within last 7 days

Pending Retention Records: Search for records with missing base date

Document Status Urgent: Searches for documents with 'Urgent' document status


For example:

You may wish to create a "Saved Search" screen that is specifically designed to search for "Unpaid Invoice" documents in Docsvault. To do this, you may employ the use of a  Profile called "Invoice".  This custom property may include several fields like "Client", "Invoice#"," Amount", "Due Date", "Paid Status"etc.


Create a "Saved Search" screen that includes the index "Paid" that is set to "No" status and all other fields are not included in the search.


When a user selects the "Unpaid Invoice Search" from the section of "Saved Search" in Search tab, it will automatically will perform the search and display all the unpaid Invoices.
