Performing an Advanced Search

Elvanto gives you the power to filter people using People Views and advanced search. You can perform advanced queries specifying what people you’d like to find and also create saved People Views to reuse over and over. There is no need to learn or use complex queries to make these searches. We take the hard part out and leave you with the easy parts of creating filters.

You can perform an advanced search by specifying criteria of who you’d like to search for and export the information into Excel, CSV or PDF format.

To Perform an Advanced Search

  1. Login to your Elvanto Admin account.

  2. Hover on the People section in the main menu on the left-hand side.

  3. Once the menu pops out to the right, click on Advanced Search in the list.

  4. The next page gives you three main sections where you can specify what you want to search by and what you want to display, once you have made all your selections click Search to view results. 

  5. Once you view results you can Edit the Search, Save the Search, or Export the data.

Read this article for more information).
