As you type in the search box, you can see a list of type-ahead suggestions that might be similar to the search query that you are typing.

These suggestions include a list of the following items:

  • Saved searches: Top five most frequently run saved searches.
  • History: Top five most recently run regular searches.

You can select a suggestion to perform a search with the suggested string as your search query.

Note that the search suggestions only list the top five saved searches. If there are more than five saved searches that might be relevant to your search term, you can see them by clicking Show All at the top-right side of the suggestions list. When you do this, you are redirected to the Saved Searches tab and a list of saved searches containing the search term (fully or partially) are displayed. The list of saved searches is filtered based on the saved search name or search string. If you do not type a search term and click Show All at the top-right side of the suggestions list, the complete list of saved searches is displayed.
