As an educator or employer browsing the marketplace for projects or experiences, you can use the saved search feature to save your defined search criteria. This allows you to quickly perform a search without needing to manually enter all of the search conditions each time.

Creating a saved search

  1. Go to the project/experience marketplace to browse for potential matches.

  2. Enter the search criteria you want to save (e.g. select subcategories, location, or other advanced filters). In the example below, the search criteria includes two subcategories: communications and market research.

  3. Click on the heart icon next to the advanced filter icon.

  4. After clicking the heart icon, you will see a modal where you can enter a name for your saved search. You will also see a checkbox option to receive alerts via email when new content matching your search is published. Enter these details and click “Save”.

  5. That's it! You’ve created a saved search. You may create as many saved searches as you need.
