Managing saved find requests
Whether a saved find or recent find is available to a user depends on the account that is used and the table that the layout is based on, including any related tables that are referenced in the find criteria.
Users logged in as one FileMaker account will see the same saved finds and recent finds as other FileMaker users sharing that account. You can edit, duplicate, or delete a saved find.
Users logged into the same external authentication account will see different lists of saved and recent finds, depending on the account ID and the user name passed to the external authentication server. You can clear saved finds for external user accounts that are no longer active.
To edit, duplicate, or delete a saved find:
1. In the status toolbar, click the down arrow next to Find (Windows), or click and hold Find (macOS). Then choose Edit Saved Finds from the list.
2. Specify options for the saved find.
See Saving a find request.
3. Click OK.
To delete all saved finds for a user from an externally authenticated account:
1. Follow the steps in Creating accounts that authenticate via an external server to access the Edit Account dialog box.
2. In the Edit Account dialog box, click User Data.
3. In the Manage User Data for External Account dialog box, select the user name and data you want to delete.
4. Click Clear.
