Using Saved Queries and Filters

Saved queries and filters are expressions that you can store so that you can quickly reapply them. This feature is useful when you find that you frequently perform the same long query and would like to avoid having to retype it each time.

The difference between saved queries and saved filters is that saved queries do not accept additional expressions; whereas, saved filters do.

Example: If you enter the Coveo AND Search query in the search box and you apply the saved query @sysauthor=John, your original Coveo AND Search query is replaced by @sysauthor=John. However, if @sysauthor=John is a saved filter, it is added to the query expression to form Coveo AND Search @sysauthor=John.

Note: The saved queries and filters feature is optional and must be enabled by your Coveo administrator for a specific search interface (see Activating Search Interface Options).

Important: Saved queries and filters are stored in your browser cookies and are therefore only available with this browser on this computer. They will be lost if you clear your browser cookie memory.
