Saving and Sharing Searches

Saved Searches provide a way for volunteers to easily recall a set of search parameters.  This is handy if you frequently want to find, for example, date & time specific opportunities that serve children.

Saved searches are useful useful as they provide URLs that admins can use in the CMS for creating navigation items that display a specific saved, filtered-search result.

Searches and URLs for filtered search results can be created and saved from the Search page or from the Opportunity Calendar page.
