CaseLink² Advanced Search

In CaseLink², you can search for cases based on specific parameters, including Asset or No Asset cases, Dates, Status, Fees, Debtor Name, and more.

To access the Advanced Search Panel in CaseLink², click the blue ‘ADV’ button next to the search field in the Global Menu Bar, shown below.

From the Advanced Search screen, select whether you are looking for Asset Cases, No Asset Cases, or Both, then enter additional parameters in one or more of the tabs in order to narrow your search results.

You can also enter Case Tags in the search menu at the top of the screen to target specific keywords you may have used to identify cases.

As you are done entering your parameters, the ribbon at the bottom of the screen will allow you to either ‘Search’ or ‘Save Search.’ By clicking ‘Save Search,’ you will be able to run the exact search again and again—saving you tremendous time when looking for similar cases in the future.

The Advanced Search in CaseLink² automatically remembers the search parameters of the last advanced search performed—to clear all search parameters, click ‘Restore to Default.’

Once you run your Advanced Search, your search results will appear in a tabular format, as shown below. Click on a case in the table to access the details for that case.

It’s scary how easy it is to use ‘Advanced Search’ in CaseLink², isn’t it?
