Quick search

Much of the work you do in Broadstripes will begin with a search. Whether you’re trying to pull up the record of one specific person, or all the people at a certain work location, it’s simple with Quick Search.

  1. Click the Quick Search link in the toolbar to begin.
  2. Quick search will open in a new window. Start typing to Find by name (to find just one worker) or Find by Employment/location (to see all workers at a given location).
  3. As you type, Broadstripes will suggest names for you.
  4. If you’re searching by location, but have tiered employments (for instance, departments, sub-departments, and floors) that’s OK. Just type the name of the location you’re looking for — Broadstripes will automatically search all levels of the employment hierarchy and suggest a match.

    Employment searches will look at all levels of an employment hierarchy to find the right location.
