How can you narrow down your results using different operators

Yesss! Yes, we do :)

There are a few places you can use it, the first time being your project setup:

  • required keyword - operator AND

  • excluded keyword - operator NOT

If you need more information about this, please go here :)

The next opportunity to use 'search filters' or 'boolean search filters' will be in your main Mentions center.

By simply inputting a 'keyword' in this search bar - you can search within your collected mentions (please note this form of searching is temporary and won't affect future collections - so you can search as much as you like!)

If you want to search for more than one keyword in this search bar, you can narrow down your results with different variations of search, such as using {curly brackets} and operators, such as

  • {AND}

  • {OR}

  • {NOT}

  • {IS}

For example, your main keyword is Tesla, and you're looking for car reviews about that brand, so you can use car{AND}review to narrow down your results for those specific phrases used together within your results.

If you want to go through mentions covering tesla and cars but not check the reviews, you'll need car{AND}{NOT}review typed in the search bar.

If you want to check in your results mentions covering reviews or prices of Tesla, then you can use reviews{OR}prices

You can also use operator {IS} if one of your keywords is TeslaCar and you want to go through the mentions that only cover Tesla, just like this

Please note: the most important part of using boolean operators is that they need to be passed between the braces {}.

You can save such search for later use using Save current filter:

This way, there's no need to put search each time you wish to check those mentions.
​HINT: Filters are saved for each account user - so if you set it for yourself, your friend won't see it!
