Saving Search

This function allows you to save filters and search parameters to be easily recalled again. As iconik saves the search, and not the results, the results may change between each search if other assets would be linked to the search the other time.

  1. Make sure the saved search panel is opened by clicking on the saved search icon in the search page.
  2. It will open a list of previous saved searches if there are any.
  3. At the top of the panel is a box to enter the name you wish to use to describe the saved search.
  4. After entering a name, press the plus button next to it.

Sharing saved searches.

Saved searches can have Access Control Lists applied to them to define which users and groups have what kind of access. This allows you to create saved searches that others can use and potentially edit, or to keep the saved search private.
