Pre-Filtering the Group Finder URL

You can pre-filter the Group Finder URL so specific search criteria are auto-filled when someone clicks the link. Simply append the group_finder.aspx URL as desired. Most of the following require the record ID rather than the record title. To find the record ID, open the appropriate record and note the ID. The available filters are:

  • Congregation: ?filter=campus:<congregation ID>
  • Zip Code: ?filter=zip:<zip code>
  • Keyword: ?filter=keyword:<keyword> (example: ?filter=keyword:book)
  • Group Focus: ?filter=groupfocus:<group focus ID>
  • Life Stage: ?filter=lifestage:<life stage ID>
  • Sunday Meeting Day: ?filter=sun:1 (example: ?filter=fri:1 or ?filter=thu:1|fri:1)
  • Monday Meeting Day: ?filter=mon:1
  • Tuesday Meeting Day: ?filter=tue:1
  • Wednesday Meeting Day: ?filter=wed:1
  • Thursday Meeting Day: ?filter=thu:1
  • Friday Meeting Day: ?filter=fri:1
  • Saturday Meeting Day: ?filter=sat:1
  • Morning Meeting Time: ?filter=morning:1 (example: ?filter=morning:1 or ?filter=morning:1|afternoon:1)
  • Lunch Time Meeting Time: ?filter=lunchtTime:1 (Note: the T must be capitalized)
  • Afternoon Meeting Time: ?filter=afternoon:1
  • Evening Meeting Time: ?filter=evening:1

Single filters can simply be appended to the URL. For example, to see Events for a specific campus: group_finder.aspx?filter=campus:1. Multiple filters are appended to the URL and separated with a pipe. For example, to see Groups in a certain zip code that meet in the morning or afternoon: group_finder.aspx?filter=zip:60652|morning:1|afternoon:1.
