Filters: mbex.org

posted on 05.25.2021

Many members find the ability of setting up filters to search through projects a great way to save time. However, when utilizing this tool there are a few things to keep in mind to come up with better results. If filtering projects using a keyword(s), specify whether or not you want to set up a search using the SAM search utility (search through the whole spec book) or a search of only the specification index. To bring up better results with a CSI number, search for a division as a whole instead of entering an exact spec number. For example, type in 09 to bring up all projects with specifications that contain any combination of numbers within division nine. Also, keep in mind that there is no limit to how many filters can be made, so keep each one simple, and do more than one!
