Search, Sort, and Filter Correspondences

Objective

To use the search, filter, and sort options to quickly locate correspondences or personalize how correspondences are listed.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Correspondence tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • Use the search tool to further narrow the displayed results. The search tool respects any selected filter parameters and will only search for items within the filtered results. Use one or more filters to restrict which items are displayed.
    • The filters you apply (by selecting items in the Add Filter drop-down list) are persistent and will be retained for your next session, unless you click Clear All.
    • Use sorting to rearrange the way correspondences are listed.
    • Search, Sort, and Filter can be used in combination to locate items or further personalize how correspondences are listed.
