Use the advanced search

 

In this article: 


You can use advanced search to generate request lists based on filters you select. You can use these lists to create reports based on the data you most need, or to get a quick overview of what is most pressing in your program. 

Here’s an example of some of the data you can pull with advanced search: 

  • Requests that have not submitted follow-up surveys.
  • Requests that have been paid.
  • Requests that have incomplete payments.
  • Requests by budget.
  • Requests by time period.
