Saving searches

Saved searches are ways of storing a search that you make frequently. To save a search, first make sure that you are logged in. Then perform a search in the usual way, and use the [Save] link at the top of the search results.

Editing searches

A list of all your saved searches can be found on the account page. You can edit or delete your saved searches from there. You can also opt to display or hide the search from the site menu (on the left of the page).

Email alerts

A saved search can be used as an email alert. When new performances are added to BellBoard that would match a alert search, you will receive an email notifying you of the performance. You can opt to receive alerts immediately the performance is received, or you can opt to batch the notifications into a nightly, weekly or monthly email. This can be configured by locating the performance on the account page, and then editing it. Weekly emails are sent in the early hours on Monday morning (UK time), and monthly emails on the 1st of the month.

RSS feeds

It is possible to use a saved search as a custom RSS feed. Simply select Publish as RSS and enter a brief description of the search in the Description of RSS box. You will see RSS links by the search in various places on the site.
