The Contact Management software allows you to do a quick search on one or all fields without going through a separate screen which enables users to find information quickly.

If you run the same search criteria many times or need complex search expressions, then you can use a filter. Filters allow you to retrieve and view only the information in which you are interested. For example, you can create a filter of all the contacts in the city of Atlanta, Georgia, not updated in past 30 days.
