Modifying or Renaming a Filter

If you want to modify a saved filter, there are two ways to do that.

For either approach, start by loading the filter (click the Search profiles field, then click the appropriate filter name). From there, you can do one of two things. For one, you can complete this procedure:

  1. Click Show Filters, make any required changes, then click the icon and click Update selected filter:
  2. In the Update saved search dialog box, click Save:

Alternatively, you can:

  1. Load the filter and then immediately click Update selected filter.
  2. Manually update the query shown in the Update saved search dialog box.
  3. Click Save.

Either way, the filter will be modified.

You can also use the latter approach to rename an existing filter. For example, suppose you have a filter named Filter 1, and you want to change that filter name to US Residents. To do that:

  1. Click the Show profiles field and then, from the Saved Filters section, click Filter 1:
  2. Click the Search History and Filters icon, and then click Update selected filter:
  3. In the Update saved search dialog box, type US Residents in the Filter Name field:
  4. Click Save.

If you look in the saved filters list, you’ll see that Filter 1 has been renamed US Residents.
