Step 4: Auto-Search

sales-i will begin filtering through the results after two or more characters have been entered and will display entries for any line containing those same characters.

Note: As sales-i searches through results, the totals at the top will adapt to reflect the sales from the filtered results.

Step 5: Search - A space before text

Add a space before a string of characters to indicate that the word or number is not the first word or number in the description or code.

For example, entering a space before the word “Auto” would display results such as “Bill’s Auto Garage” and “Very Best Auto” and would exclude results like “Auto World” or “Auto Repair House”.

Step 6: Search - A space after text

Add a space after a string of characters to indicate that the word or number is the first word or number in the description or code.

For example, entering a space after the word “Lumber” would display results such as “Lumber Inc.” and “Lumber Suppliers United” and would exclude results such as “Empire Lumber” or “Big Tex Lumber”.

Step 7:  Search - Insert *

If you are unsure of how to spell the name or description you are trying to locate, use the asterisk (*) to replace the letters you are unsure of.

sales-i will display any line containing the letters in the order you’ve typed in, even if there are letters in between.

For example, if you are unsure how to spell a customer’s name (Roehrig), and you type in “R*rig”, sales-i will display “Roehrig” in the results because it contains the letters you entered in the same order.

Step 8: Search - Special characters

Some special characters, such as commas, hyphens, and forward slashes are searchable.

This is especially helpful when searching for product descriptions containing special characters.

Note: Ensure you enter a space before and after your special character to enable the search to return results.
