Matrix applications can do 3 kinds of searches (local, server and miracle), see Finding Items. To make searching easier you can predefined searches.
Usage of predefined searches
Matrix applications allow you setup common used search queries in order to access them through the quick search menu.
Configuration of predefined searches
Predefined searches are stored in a project setting called "Search".
New searches can easily be saved clicking on "create a new search" and the list of predefined searches will be available with the name and its search expression between parentheses.
The search name = the name in the drop down menu
The expression = the search string (plain text or mrql: see Matrix Requirements Query Language (MRQL))
As soon as the searches are created, they will appear in the predefined searches dropdown after a refresh of the instance.
