Accessing and Viewing Saved Search Results
To access and view a Saved Search:
Step 1. Go to: Main Menu >> Saved Searches.
The Saved Searches screen displays a list of all Saved Search that have been created for your account. Note that only the Owner of a Saved Search can Edit or Delete a Saved Search.
At the top of the screen, you can conduct a search to find a specific Saved Search and filter your Saved Searches by Owner or Last Sent.
The Scope column in the Saved Searches list indicates the type of search that was saved. For example, both Saved Searches above were conducted on the Federal Contract Opportunities module in GovTribe (Main Menu > Opportunities > Federal Contract Opportunities). Note that you can save searches conducted on any Opportunities or Awards screens.
The Frequency column displays the selected frequency that Saved Search Email Notifications are sent to the Saved Search’s Owner.
The Count column on this screen displays the total number of results that match each Saved Search’s criteria.
Step 2. Click the View button for the appropriate Saved Search in the list.
GovTribe will display the current results for the search criteria, exactly the same way results are displayed when you execute any search.

Using Saved Search Email Notifications
As the Owner of any Saved Saved Search you will receive email updates instantly, daily, or weekly, depending on the Frequency setting of the Saved Search.
Email Notifications are only sent if there is new activity in your Saved Search’s results. For example, if you have a daily alert and there was no activity in the previous 24 hours, you will not receive an email notification for that Saved Search.
When there is new activity, you will receive an Email Notification that looks similar to this:
The content of the email provides recipient(s) with a list of Saved Searches that have new activity, as well as the number of new results for each updated Saved Search.
To view the new updates:
Step 1. Click on the colored number badge for the associated Saved Search. (In the above example, that would be the orange number 2.)
A browser window opens and loads the Saved Search results in GovTribe. A status bar at the top of the page indicates the displayed Saved Search.
The search results shown on the page will be only the "New Results" that were indicated in the notification email you received.
