Search

The Search tool in Loaded 7 is designed to make searching through your store’s database as easy and functional as possible.  The Search tool is key press or a mouse click away from always finding what you need within your store’s database.  To begin a search:

  1. Press the space-bar once while in any screen in Loaded 7 to open the Search window as seen in image 2
    1. Press the space bar a second time and a total listing of your store’s database will appear as a default setting to help begin your search.
    2. KEEP IN MIND if you double tap the space bar, you’ll have to delete the space before you type in your search query or Loaded 7 will not be able to locate your request.
  2. Select the magnifying glass image in the toolbar of the Loaded 7 Admin User Panel as in image 2.
  3. Search terms are letter sensitive and your list of searchable options changes with each key stroke.
