To Perform an Advanced Search for Notifications

1. Navigate to the Advanced Search page.
2. Specify how you want to apply search criteria to locate specific notifications.
3. Enter the search criteria you want to use to locate notifications. The following search options are displayed by default:
To display additional search options, select the notification property you want from the Add Column pull-down menu and select the Add button.
Note: You can choose to display more than one search option of the same type if you want to apply several search criteria to the same notification property. For example, if you want to search for notifications that were sent between two particular dates, you can display two Sent search options. Set one option to search for all notifications sent after the first date, and set the other option to search for all notifications sent before the second date. If you choose "Show table data when all conditions are met", then the search will display notifications that match both search criteria, with sent dates falling in between the two dates that you specified.
4. For each search option, select a filter operator and then enter a filter value to specify the notifications you want to display.
For the is and is not filter operators, you should enter a complete filter value that you want to match or exclude, respectively. For the other filter operators, you can enter a partial value, unless you are using the Sent, Due, and Closed search options, which always require a complete date in the date format you chose in your Oracle E-Business Suite general preferences. The filter value fields for all search options are case insensitive.
If you leave the filter operator and filter value blank for a search option, that option will not be included in the search.
Note: The greater than, less than, after, and before filter operators are not inclusive. For example, a search on the Sent option with the after operator displays only notifications sent after the date you specify, not notifications sent on that date itself.
Note: If your installation of Oracle Workflow is set up in a language other than English, the Advanced Search page uses translated versions of the notification status, notification priority, yes, and no values. In this case you should enter the translated values for the Status, Priority, Response Required, FYI, and From Me search options.
5. Select the Go button to perform your search. You can also select the Clear button to clear the search option fields and remove any additional search options you added, so that you can enter new search criteria.
6. The Advanced Search page displays the notifications that match your search criteria. For each notification, the list displays the following information:
Select the From, Type, Subject, Sent, Due, or Status column heading to sort the list by that column. By default, the list is sorted by sent date from most recent to oldest and then by subject in alphabetical order.
7. To collectively reassign a group of notifications, select the notifications you want and select the Reassign button. See: To Reassign a Notification to Another User.
8. You can navigate to the full details of any notification and act on the notification by clicking on the notification's Subject link or by selecting the notification and then choosing Open. See: To View the Details of a Notification.
If you select more than one notification to open, only one notification is displayed at a time. You can navigate among the open notifications by selecting the Next or Back buttons in the Notification Details page.
9. To define notification routing rules, select the routing rules link that follows the list of notifications. See: To View and Maintain Automatic Notification Processing Rules.
10. To save your current search criteria as a personalized view for the worklist, select the Save Search button. See: To Create or Update a Personal Worklist View.
11. You can also select the Simple Search button to perform a search with less complex criteria, or select the Worklist button to navigate back to the Worklist. See: To Perform a Simple Search for Notifications.
