Add a query to your aliased finder
There are two ways to add a query to your aliased finder:
From the Favorite Queries list
The list of queries that you have marked as favorites appears in the lower part of the Finder tab in the Data Search area. To add one of your favorite queries to your aliased finder, simply click the icon at the end of the query's row.
Note that your favorite query aliases must follow the tag format of levels separated by dots to be properly classified in the aliased finder. Otherwise, they will appear as a single level in the finder. The aliases of your favorite queries cannot be modified in the Favorites Queries list. To do it, you must open the query selecting its alias, and click the query name that appears under Data Search in the navigation panel.
See Rename a query for more information.
From the search window
You can also add a query to your aliased finder directly from the search window.
- After accessing the required data table, select Additional tools → Query Info → Finder Entry Point from the toolbar.
- Enter the new Search Name. We strongly recommend that you use the tag format of levels separated by dots in order to make the best use of the aliased finder. As you type the alias tag into the Search Name field, the levels will appear below to reflect how they will appear in the aliased finder. Mark as Finder Entry Point is selected by default. Click Save and Mark to add the query to the aliased finder.
- A confirmation message appears warning you that by adding the query to the aliased finder, marking it as "findable", it will be protected against modifications. This means that you will not be able to save any changes you might make to the query in the future and that you will not be able to edit the query's alias. If you are not completely sure that the query is exactly as you need it yet, then click No, maybe later. Otherwise, click Yes, mark now to add the query to the aliased finder.
