The Global search allows you to search for clients and matters in your database.

We have also produced a short video if you prefer to watch these steps.

The Global search searches all areas of Osprey with no requirement for a wildcard to be entered and returns all matches. For best results, you should enter as much information as you can.

Once you have entered your search details in the Global search box and clicked the magnifying glass icon to perform your search, you can further filter the results found, as well as amending the layout of the columns.

To turn on the filter row, click the column chooser icon, and tick the Show Filter Row box:

In the top right of the search results screen, you can clear any grid filters you have added by clicking the Clear Grid Filters icon:
