Think of a search as a selection of rows, for example, the items whose description contains 'truck.'
The Tracker offers quick and complex searches.
Quick searches look at one column at a time. You can only search the columns displayed in the grid.
Complex searches can search ...
Calculated fields, which are calculated from the values in other fields, generally can't be searched. If a field you want to search for isn't listed as a search option, it's probably a calculated field.
Complex searches come in 3 types. 'System' searches come with the Tracker and can be used by anyone. 'Organization' searches are added by organization managers and can be used by everyone in their organization. 'User' searches can only be used by their creator. Clickthe Tools icon in the grid menu then Searches and all 3 types will be listed.
Complex searches don't have to be complicated. The Details table ordered search, for example, could have been run as a quick search.
Why use a complex search when a quick search would do? Because complex searches are saved and can be run with 3 clicks. And because complex searches can be set up as a default.
