I like to search for very specific parameters, the resulting URL's look like this:

How can I do that? Save it as a custom search? enter image description here

Normally if you want to save an Adv Search you save it as a Smart Group

we have done a lot of work for a client to make various parameters available for links to preload on Adv Search - the PR is here - https://github.com/civicrm/civicrm-core/pull/12455

  • Let me know how when you can please ;) Sep 7, 2018 at 5:04
