1) Introduction to Filter Types

The People Search option under Database Search includes five primary filter categories. Each category allows you to use multiple filters that help you make narrow and refine searches. 

Filters Categories:

  1. Lead Search Filters
  2. Company Basic Filters
  3. Company Geographic Filters
  4. Company Revenue Filters
  5. Company Last Funding Filters

First, let’s understand how each search filter works.

Text: Text or keyword-based search works without app-generated suggestions. It involves manually inputting keywords or phrases without the assistance of auto-complete or suggested search terms, for example, names.

Suggestion: This refers to making a search based on predefined labels suggested by the app. The suggestions start populating as you begin typing your inputs, for example, job title and location.

Numerical: This refers to number-based searches like year, revenue, and funding.

Selection: This refers to selecting the input from a pre-defined list of values, such as currency, company type, and headcount range, among others.
