  • Search by Text. Enter part of the search term and click the Search icon. The search may be of one or more fields. Hover to see a Tooltip indicating which fields will be searched. In some cases a different format is required. For Example, to Search by ID enter "id:xx", where "xx" is the item ID number (for example, "id:9").
  • Filter Options. Click to display or hide the additional filters.
  • Clear. Click to clear the Filter field and restore the list to its unfiltered state.
