New in Close: A brand new search experience
If you’ve ever searched for leads in Close — or even better, saved a search as a Smart View — you know it’s one of the most powerful features for building your ideal workflow. Search is where you filter your leads into segmented lists, to help you prioritize your outreach and optimize your follow-ups. Today, we’re bringing a brand new search experience to every Close account.
Here's what we improved:
A faster way to filter your leads
We’ve streamlined the search experience to make it quicker and easier to find the filters you’re looking for. In the new search sidebar, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of every filter that’s available to you — without having to click around. You still have the deep search capabilities to filter your Leads, Contacts, and communication, but you’ll get there in a fraction of the time.
We’ve replaced the drop-down lists with checkboxes, so you can search faster by choosing multiple options at once. When selecting multiple options in your filter (for example, searching opportunity status by “Active” or “Won”), they will automatically be grouped together in your search, without you needing to edit your query in the search bar.
Simpler search queries
If writing search queries doesn’t come naturally to you, you can still experience the benefits of search in Close. With the new filter options, your searches will automatically include “or”, “and”, and “not” filtering without you needing to make any edits. If you still want to stay in full control of your search results, the query will continue to be displayed in the search bar. You’ll get a better understanding of each search, and still be able to make edits if you wish.
New: Filter search
Sometimes you have an attribute in mind but aren’t quite sure where to find it. We’ve added search to the filter sidebar, so you can find the filter you need within seconds.
Improved date and time frame search
With the new calendar view, you can filter your results by a date range in a couple of clicks, without touching your keyboard. With time frame search, you can now choose between two dates for more granular results. This change reduces the room for error, and gives you a time frame in a fraction of the clicks, without any manual edits.
More granular text searching
Rather than just searching if a word or phrase occurs within a note, you can now search text more precisely without typing a query or quotation marks. We’ve added checkboxes for three additional search options: Exclude text (“does not contain”), and include or exclude exact text (“contains exactly” and “does not contain exactly”).
Easier local time filters
Reduce mishaps while selling across states and markets with an easier filtering for local time. In the new search sidebar, we’ve combined the “before” and “after” local time filters into one. This means you can search a local time window for Leads or Contacts in fewer clicks.
Turn your new searches into Smart Views for a better sales workflow
Smart Views are the secret sauce to setting up a solid sales workflow using Close. Instead of setting yourself multiple reminders, you can use Smart Views (saved lists) to create dynamic lead lists and streamline your outreach. Smart Views are saved for easy access in your left hand sidebar, and can be kept private or shared with your team. Close users love to use Smart Views to set up dynamic calling and outreach lists, and optimize their day.
Any search can easily be saved as a Smart View by clicking the star below the search bar.
