To use the search and filter options to locate items in the project's Submittals tool.
Things to Consider
- Required User Permission:
- 'Read-only' level permissions or higher on the project's Submittals tool.
- The system shows the most relevant matches at the top of the search results.
- Search settings are NOT 'sticky'.
- Preferences are remembered on a per-project basis. If you are working with the Submittals tool on multiple projects, each project will remember your last used filter preference for that project.
- Filter options are 'sticky'. After applying a filter using the project's Submittals tool, the tool will remember your last used preference, so that the next time you visit the Submittals tool, those same preferences are applied to the log. See Which filters are 'sticky' in the Submittals tool?
- Additional Information:
- When you first open a tab (e.g., Items, Packages), the system's focus is placed on the search field.
