My Favorite Saved Searches

Use CommonSpot Saved Searches to conveniently maintain quick access to frequently used search criteria.  Instead of repeatedly creating the same search queries, you can define favorites to save time completing common tasks, such as reviewing the most recently changed content, editing content owned by a specific author, or reviewing styles currently in use, as shown for the shared Bulleted list IMAGES below.

You can also share your saved searches with other team members to centrally control & quickly distribute search results updates.  CommonSpot delivers powerful capabilities for fast access to extremely refined search results.

To change the number or type of Saved Searches displayed under My Saved Searches, click the Customize link at the top of this section in the My CommonSpot view.

You can toggle between viewing searches you’ve designated as favorites and viewing all the searches you’ve saved. Features for both views are the same. See All Saved Searches
