All About: Bookmarked Searches

Note: Bookmarked Searches is a beta feature, and is not turned on by default. Please reach out to your CSM if you are interested in joining the beta testing group for this feature. 

What are Bookmarked Searches?

EverTrue's Bookmarked Searches allow you to save filtered queries to a centralized location on your Constituents tab, ensuring you can quickly run the same search at a later time with always-live results. If you find yourself running the same filter set again and again, go ahead and bookmark the search to save time!

This feature, along with the introduction of Dynamic Lists, replaces what you might know as our Saved Search functionality. The distinguishing difference between Bookmarked Searches and Dynamic Lists is the live element of a bookmarked search. Though dynamic lists update daily, they capture a moment in time (either the results of their daily refresh, or updated results reflecting modifications made to a dynamic list) and offer insight into the changes of your list. When opening a bookmarked search, the results shown will be as up-to-date as possible but will not notify you of changes to your search results.

Let's dive into the new features you will see with Bookmarked Searches, and explore how to bookmark a search for future use!

What's New with Bookmarked Searches?

Finding your Bookmarked Searches

You will notice changes to the location of your saved searches with our Bookmarked Search feature. Rather than being found in their own tab on your left-hand navigation bar, a bookmarked search can be located within the Constituents page of your Constituents tab.

To view a collective list of searches you've bookmarked, turn on the Filters Early Adopter toggle, navigate to your Constituents tab, and click the Bookmarked Searches dropdown found at the top of the page. 

To view the detailed results of Bookmarked Searches, simply click any of the search names from this dropdown. 

Sharing your Bookmarked Searches

Similarly to Saved Searches, our Bookmarked Searches feature allows you to share your searches with colleagues who are also EverTrue users. However, you will find two key improvement with sharing Bookmarked Searches:

  1. The sharable link associated with a bookmarked search will not change when the search's filters are modified. 
  2. The added ability to share collaborative access to your bookmarked searches by including colleagues as viewers or editors. 

You can find a bookmarked search's sharing options by opening a search you would like to share from the Bookmarked Search dropdown of your Constituents tab, clicking Actions in the top right-hand corner and selecting Share Bookmark. A popup will appear in which the search's shareable link can copied and expanded individual access options can be found.

In the example above, the shareable link will stay the same no matter the adjustments applied to the bookmarked search. This change ensures that any shareable links provided to your colleagues remain relevant and accurate vs the current need to produce a new link when adjustments are applied to a saved search.

Using Bookmarked Searches

Let's take a look at Bookmarked Searches in action by reviewing how to create, modify, and delete your bookmarked searches! Be sure to turn on your Filters Early Adopter toggle to access these actions. 

To create a new bookmarked search, navigate to your Search and Segment page from your Constituents tab by either clicking More Filters and applying your selected filters or by inputting your Quick Filters selections and clicking Go. Please note you will need to apply at least one filter to enable the option to create a bookmarked search.

Once your filters are applied and you are on your Search and Segment page, click the Actions button in the top-right corner of the page and select Bookmark Search

A popup will appear into which you can input a name for the bookmarked search. Click Save to finish creating your bookmarked search.

Once you've created a bookmarked search, you can make modifications to the search by opening it from the Bookmarked Search dropdown of your Constituents tab. Use your filters bar at the top of the page to either adjust the search's Quick Filters or click More Filters to add new or remove existing filters from the search. 

When your bookmarked search filters are adjusted but not yet permanently modified, you will notice a Reset button appear next to the applied filters. Clicking this changes your results back to the search's previously established parameters.

To finish permanently modifying your search, click Actions in the top-right corner of your page. Select Update Bookmark to modify your existing search with your new filter criteria. If you'd prefer to save the changes as a brand new bookmarked search, select Save as a New Bookmark

Please note that the Share Bookmark and Delete Bookmark actions are grayed out and not available if unsaved modifications are in progress. Additionally, you will only see the Update Bookmark action option for bookmarked searches created by you. This option will not appear if a search is shared with you.  

If you need to delete one of your bookmarked searches, open your Constituents tab and select the bookmarked search you would like to remove from the Bookmarked Search dropdown. Click your Actions button in the top-right corner and choose Delete Bookmark.

A popup will appear in which you can confirm that you would like to delete the search by clicking Delete.

Please note you will only be able to delete bookmarked searches for which you are the owner. If a search is shared with you, this function will not be available.
