Using custom searches

Custom searches enable users to search for specific members. They also allow you to set access permissions for pages, define notification recipients, and perform other tasks.

1. Go to the custom search screen

Search conditions can be specified on the custom search screen. To access it, select [Operation] -> [Custom search] in the sidebar menu.
