I have been tasked with redesigning our saved search function, as it has been deemed confusing (and I can't find another site that works like ours does currently). Are there any standard ways of handling both Saving a search and then allowing people to edit and save changes to a search? I have checked out what Ebay does. Is that fairly standard?
A few things, first a few functionalities clarifications
- Save search as... Give the saved query a name.
- Enable the user to delete the saved search.
- Display the time stamp when the save was created/modified.In case hell need another clue to when and why it was saved.
- You can also add the searched terms.If the user searched for ice cream, november, vanilla, display values.This helps in recognition instead of recall.
You can look into TFS/jira and these to see the saved query functionality. Linkedin also used to have this feature on their desktop.
