Create a query

You can create and save search parameters that you use frequently as a query. It is quicker to reuse a query than it is to recreate the search parameters.

You can create the following types of queries:
  • Personal queries: Sets of criteria that you can reuse through IXIASOFT CCMS.
  • Personal Textml queries: Sets of criteria that you can access and edit through the Textml Server console.

To create a query:

  1. In the Search view, set up the search you want.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To save the criteria as a personal query, click the Save Query button (Save options icon).
    • To save the criteria as a personal Textml query, click the Save XML Query button (Save xml query icon).
    The Save query window appears.
    Figure: Saving a query with a viewpoint
    Note: The Save viewpoint with query option is displayed only if a viewpoint is selected in the Search Results window.
  3. Enter a descriptive name.
  4. (Optional): Select Save viewpoint with query if you want to save the query along with a viewpoint.
    A viewpoint will automatically organize the search results into the categories that you defined.
  5. Click OK.

The query is saved under Personal or Personal Textml in the Queries panel.
