Allow users to save filter settings



  • Many of our users have common filters they leverage for most searches. The most common example is a language filter (i.e. our English speaking users filter to English content, our Japanese speaking users filter to Japanese content).
    Our users would like the ability to save filter settings so that when they open the SearchUnify tool the saved filters are already applied and they do not need to select them every time.



  • @cpegram Awesome- an easy one! Happy to help and welcome to the journey!



  • @Christie - Thank you so much for your response. I don't know how I missed that bookmarks could be used in this way!
    This absolutely meets the needs of our users, and solves the problem 🙂



  • Hello @cpegram ,

    The way I understand this is if you are using the client as is (see support.broadcom.com and select Enterprise Software and then type in the word testing), you can enable Bookmarks that will do this easily. Even if you didn't enable bookmarks you could possibly copy/paste URLS to get to default behaviors.

    Also there is more "formal" information from SearchUnify on this in this post: http://community.searchunify.com/topic/6/can-end-user-save-its-filter-preferences/

    If you are embedding the search client (i.e. into an frame of an application), then this is not possible at this time (note: I imagine with money anything is possible 🙂 ) Here is a screenshot of how we have embedded it into our client. As you can see there is no URL to copy/paste nor can bookmarks be used.

    Hope this helps, if you want to chat more, please let me know.
    Happy New year,
    Christie
