Saved searches are a way for End Users and Administrative Staff to quickly retrieve records in the database without having to recreate the search strategy using the search fields. It provides a one-click search option that makes life easier. It can be used for simple searches or very complex searches that are difficult to remember or create.
This function allows you a search strategy to be saved, either as a report or as the search criteria so that you can run the same search at a later date. It then appears in the list of saved searches displayed on the Saved Searches tab in the search screen. Saved searches have unique URLs which means that links to them can be placed in other places. Save the Search and give it a description. Highlight the description and copy it to the clipboard
Whether you are able to save searches or not is defined in Access Permissions.
As an alternative, Administrative staff can "collect" individual records. Use the Collections feature.
