Manage Saved Searches

CommonSpot's Saved Searches feature enables contributors at all levels to save time by maintaining frequently performed searches and running them with a single click. Use Manage Saved Searches to globally view saved searches in use at your site and to create and share new saved searches, review existing searches, or delete searches no longer in use. Contributors have the option of sharing saved searches (as shown below for Bulleted List IMAGES), to save time distributing and communicating updates to commonly used queries. See "My Saved Searches" in the CommonSpot Contributor's Reference for details on this feature.
