How to use quick search

The quick search bar is located at the bottom of every list view screen in aACE. In this example, we show the quick search bar from Contacts.

Using Quick Search

  1. Enter search criteria in the fields you wish to search by.
  2. Click Search.
  3. The screen refreshes with a list of records matching the entered criteria.


The NOT Condition

Use the Not flag as a condition. For example, to search for all contacts who are NOT related to ABC Company:

  1. Check the Not flag to select the condition.
  2. Type the company name in the Company field or use the selector (magnifying glass) to search for the exact name.
  3. When ready, click Search.
  4. The screen will refresh to display a list of all contacts who are not related to the ABC Company.

Clear All Fields

Click the minus button just to the left of the Search button to clear all fields in the quick search bar.
