Search By Column

You can narrow your search to a specific column. To do so, click the down arrow next to the Search field and then input your search term in the field below the desired column header. You can search by multiple columns by inputting search terms in the fields below the additional column headers. Note that column-based searched are "starts with" searches, meaning that they are only looking for matches with the beginning of the specific columns.
 
When you are finished with your column-based search, you have two options to get rid of the column search fields: either click the down arrow or navigate to a different page.
 

Alternate Column-Based Search: Commas

MinistryPlatform is configured to recognize that commas within search criteria specify columns. To know how many commas to use to narrow your search to a specific column, hover your cursor over the desired column header: the number that pops up indicates the number of commas needed. 
 

For example, in the photo below, you could input ",,,,Gainsville" in the Search field to return all records with Gainsville as their City.

You can also search by multiple columns using commas. For example, you could input ",,,,Gainsville,,88888" to return all the records with a City of Gainesville and a Postal Code of 88888.
