Dear Colleague, 

As we mentioned in our last newsletter, Profound now offers an improved search interface. You'll now find that the Profound search looks the same whether you are running a keyword search or adding filters to focus your search. Learn more about this update in the next section.

As always, if you have any questions regarding the content on Profound, please contact your Account Manager or Training & Applications Consultant.

Search Updates

With one interface, it is easy to edit your searches, add or remove filters, sort your results, or further refine with search result navigators.

One of the usability improvements with this release is the type-ahead matching we offer on publisher, industry, company, and region filters. When you begin typing in these fields, we match the term you are typing to the data on our Profound platform to offer you the most appropriate search term.

In a recent incremental improvement, we offer not only a match to your industry term, but also the context of where your term falls within our Profound taxonomy. For example, if you start typing "Technology" in the industry filter, you will see we have dozens of categories within our taxonomy that classify our documents within different industries and verticals.

We will continue to improve Profound search and the platform in coming releases. We hope you find the new search interface easy to use and helpful to your process.

Profound Tip: Advanced Filters

Not seeing the Advanced Filters you used to use? They’re still there!

Last month, the Profound “Simple” and “Advanced” pages were combined into a single page so no one would miss any of our targeted search options. By default, the additional search options are not displayed, but they are still there.

Simply click on the “More filters” button on the right side, below your keyword search box:

Two popular search options – Title and Industry – are displayed first. To see even more, continue to click on the blue “Add filter” button to view all your search options. Remember, you can also change your search option by clicking on the button on the left. You’ll see them displayed there as well.
