Intrinsiq Support: The Search Function

Published Bernice on Wednesday, April 21, 2021

The Search Function in a School Management System

The Search function is a feature that is often overlooked when choosing what School Management System to work with, and the reason is that in most cases “search” functions tend to be quite useless, in that they are often something that is just included in the package. With Intrinsiq, the Search feature is also something that can be customized based on you and your clients’ needs.  

Search Function depending on the entity

With Intrinsiq, your different users can have different search functions (i.e. Agents, Students, Invoices, etc.). It is important to think about the lowest entity you wish to include in your results. For example if you want users to be able to search for both Student Course data and Student data, then you should start your search at Student Courses because the Courses belong to the Student. If you want both Payments and Invoice details, you start at Payments because the Payments belong to the Invoice.

Next, add your filters

Once you’ve determined the search entities, you can continue to customize your search function by adding filters to it. In the Filter Criteria panel, you can choose how to filter your data. For example if you wish to find Students on course, you can apply the filters for that. With Intrinsiq, you can combine as many filter criteria as you require. 

The importance of a customized “Search” option

The reason why we insist that having a customized “Search” option is highly important is that you can choose what you want the system to do for you. In other words, even when it comes to searching, you are the ones who determine what comes up and what doesn’t. This helps to improve the customer journey, and as a result helps to transform more leads into sales.

Saving your preferences

It is interesting to note that all the searches can all be saved under the user's profile, so if the search is a complex one, you won’t have to go through all the steps each time. On the contrary, you’ll be able to access it very quickly after you save it the first time round.

9 months FREE hosting on top of that
