Check out the Work Center search improvements we added in SBM 11.6.
You can now save facets that you have selected as a search filter. This lets you save and reuse your facet selections for another search. To save a search filter, enter your search phrase, select your facets, and then click Apply selections:
Click Save As, and then enter a name for your search filter:
The next time you perform a search, just select your saved filter in the Refined By section instead of applying each individual facet again.
Search in Sub-Projects
You can now select projects and sub-projects that you want to search in via My Project Items before you perform a search. This lets you apply a project filter before you start searching for items.
The selections you make in My Project Items only apply to work item searches. You still use My Projects in your user profile to save your preferred projects for submitting items, creating feeds, and creating reports.
The project selections that you make are saved in your browser's storage.
New Search Facets
You can now use User, Multi-User, Single Selection, Multi-Selection, Single Relational, and Multi-Relational fields as facets on the Work Center search results page for a single application.
To use these fields as facets, select the Appears on searches for this table option on the field in Composer, and then redeploy the process app.
