Product update: Updated search interface

Published Sept. 10, 2021

Cause IQ's quickest and most powerful search interface yet

As you've seen, Cause IQ's rockstar development team recently rolled out an upgrade to our search interface. We kept the look and feel of the search interface the same, but you'll notice that load times for adding filters, changing views, and navigating pages are much quicker.

Smart Search Box

Feature-wise, I want to point out the changes to the keywords search box at the top of the search interface. This search feature is now a predictive Smart Search Box like the one on your Dashboard. You can use the Smart Search Box to access specific organization profile pages or to start organization search segments -- using suggested filters. You can find specific organizations by Name, EIN, or Website domain, and you can start new searches with our Types (blue), Issues (gold), Characteristics (green), State (pink), Metro area (grey), or Keywords filters.

Here's the Smart Search Box in action on the updated search interface:

View how many organizations match a qualitative filter option

The next thing I want to point out is when adding qualitative filters to a search, you can now see how many nonprofits match the filter options in the "Options available" preview screen.

Here's an example:

Redesigned "Analyze" tool

Next, let's take a look at the upgrades to the "Analyze" tool. We've completely redesigned the "Analyze" to help you better understand summary trends for organizations that belong to searches or lists, and we've made it a lot easier to add new filters within the tool. Cause IQ now generates bar graphs (compared to histogram graphs previously) when you're analyzing quantitative details (e.g., Total revenues). The changes to the graph type make it easier for you to understand where the organizations fall with respect to the selected quantitative field. Also, you can now click the bar(s) within the graph to quickly add a filter to your current search to further drill down on the segment.
