For each campaign, each user of your account can customize the search. This means you can change the search engine, the fields that appear when you arrive at the Donations Perceived page, and the columns of information that appear.
You may find that you don't need some information and need others. You can also consider the fact that displaying columns in your list allows you to create a customized report.
Simple and advanced search
In the "Donations" application, in the "Campaigns" sub-menu and then in a specific campaign, go to the list of donations by clicking on the Donations perceived tile
There are two types of search: simple search and advanced search.
The simple search allows you to search for a word among all the available fields in your list of donations.
The advanced search allows you to do more specific searches and to search in a particular field.
Configure Advanced Search Settings
The Advanced Search settings allow you to define custom search criteria based on the available fields that will make all your searches easier.
When you are on your Donations list page (Donations Received), you can click on the gear wheel at the top of the page and access the search settings.
To begin, you must choose the number of columns to display. This will determine the number of fields displayed in a row. Here is an example of a 3 column display:

In the menu at the bottom of the screen, it is possible to reset the search criteria to values predefined by Yapla. There are two types of resets: Advanced Search and Simple Search.
