Basic search

You can search companies in cgstudiomap by using multiple combinations of search criteria. You can save search criteria as a specific filter, which is a filter that stays up to date with companies that meet your criteria.The research field is at the top-right corner of the screen.

You can use this option to look for company information such as; name, email address, city, industry or tag fields.

How to create specific search criteria or compare fields?

In the following examples; we display the menu, create a specific filter and save it:

We then applied our filter and the system has automatically set the camera on the top of Montreal and our filter is now loaded in the search bar.

Save a filter

Save this filter for later. Go to the “save current filter” section and name you search criteria and save it. Since we want to save a filter, we must have a filter in the search bar.
