How do I save my searches?

  23 Nov 2021

“My saved searches” feature, available on the Search page, allows users to store search filter selections to their user preferences and receive immediate e-mail notifications when new records that match the specified criteria are published.

NOTE: Since “My saved searches” are associated with your registered clearing-house account, you first need to sign in in order to be able to use this feature.


To SAVE your search results:

  1. Select your filters (Global and Sub-filters, if required), and then click on the Save this search button.
  2. In the window that opens, type the title of your search.
  3. Optional: check the“ Send me an email when records relevant to this search are added or updated”
  4. Click on the Save button.

To SAVE your search results and select email notification preferences:

  1. On the Search page, click on “My saved searches”. 
  2. From the “Select frequency” drop-down list, select the frequency of email notifications that you wish to receive from the clearing-house: Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Never (this option allows you to stop receiving the notifications that are already preset without deleting them).
  3. In the Overview alerts section, click on the “Email me” check box to add an overview section to your email notifications containing a concise summary of all new or updated records published within your selected frequency.
  4. Click on the Add new button.
  5. In the window that opens:

- Type the title of you search.

- In Search, select the Global filters and, if required, Sub-filters of interest.

- Check the“ Send me an email when records relevant to this search are added or updated”

        4. Click on the Save button.

NOTE: to run and quickly access your saved search, click on the Search icon/button (which you see once you click on "My saved searches”) for the respective saved search .


To EDIT your searches:

  1. On the Search page, click on “My saved searches”.
  2. Click on the Edit icon/button of the respective search.
  3. In the window that opens: edit your selections.
  4. Click on the Save button.

NOTE: to stop receiving updates  by e-mail, you can also simply deselect Email me check box or select Never from the “Select frequency” drop-down list.


 To DELETE the saved searches, click on the Delete icon.


TIP: If you have already used the Email Alerts feature on the Submit page to set up you e-mail notifications, these ‘alerts' will also be displayed in “My saved searches” section on the Search page. Both, the Email Alerts and “My saved searches”, function the same way and selected filters, once defined and saved, are shown in both places automatically.
