Use the aliased finder
The aliased finder is a finder that you create for yourself in order to facilitate access to the queries that you use most frequently. It works just like any other finder except that you can create alternative tags, or aliases, for the tables and queries that you choose to include. While other finders use the standardized tags that identify tables using the rule of
technology.brand.type.subtype, here you can create a tag structure that makes sense for how you want to group, identify, and access the queries.
For example, maybe you want to identify your queries by region, the type of information, and other details that describe the data. So to analyze sales on your website, you might add a query to the aliased finder by naming it
To open your aliased finder, go to Data Search, open the drop-down selector in the Finder tab and select Aliased Finder.
Queries in the aliased finder, also called aliased queries, can have tags with up to six levels. In this example, the finder has four.
When you first start using Devo, your aliased finder will be empty. You will need to add your chosen queries to your aliased finder one by one. We recommend that you devise a plan for naming your queries before you start adding them to your finder. Or, alternatively, you could start by marking the queries as favorites and, once you have a good number of them, add them to your aliased finder. The instructions in this article can guide you when building your finder.
