Quick filters

Quick filters are ways in which you can search faster, improving the time it takes to find results. 

For example, when a quick filter like ‘people’ or ‘posts’ is applied, you will be taken directly to that section in the Search Results Overview. 

Quick filters can also be used when searching within a specific Channel or Page. 


Searching in Channels and Pages

On Channels and Pages, you can:

  • Filter content directly 
  • Apply quick filters
  • The quick filters will reset when you leave the current Channel or Page. Otherwise, they will stay enabled for other search queries

When you are viewing a Channel or a Page, by clicking on the search bar at the top of the page OR on the search option in the navigation, the search will automatically filter results within the Channel or Page.

If you wish to search through your Happeo in general, you can simply click on the next to the Channel or Page name in the Search Bar.
