Quick Search Feature

Quick Search is a new search bar at the top of your screen that lets you quickly search for matters, invoices, and timekeepers. To learn more about this new feature, click here.

You can find the Quick Search bar at the top of every page in the Brightflag application. 

To begin your search, type your search term into the Quick Search bar. This could be a matter name, invoice number, or a timekeeper's name.

Search Results

Instant Results

As you type, the tool will instantly display relevant results below the search bar. This means you can see results before hitting Enter.

User Permissions

The Quick Search Feature only displays what you have permission to see today. It respects your access rights, ensuring data security and compliance.

Advanced Filter Options

If you have many results, you can use filters to narrow down your search. Filters may include categories like "Matters," "Invoices," or "Timekeepers."

To close the quick search feature you can press escape. Or you can click anywhere else on screen outside of the dropdown menu of results. 

Search terms are retained within the same session. When you move to a different page in the application, the previous search term you used will appear in the search bar. Logging out of Brightflag will clear the previous searches.
