Product Update: Introducing Saved Searches  

Global innovation Exchange

Send Message

If you have logged on to the Global Innovation Exchange (GIE) platform recently you may have noticed something different. As of Jan 14, 2020, there are 13,596 innovations on GIE, 728 funders, and 413 funding opportunities. The GIE database has been growing significantly and we know how frustrating it can be to search again and again for the same criteria. To make it easier for GIE users, we have added a ‘Save Search’ feature.


How it Works


Anyone with a profile on GIE (and Custom sites powered by GIE) can save their search on Directories.

Saved Searches are displayed on a user’s dashboard page (accessible from the user’s dropdown menu under their profile > Saved Searches tab and from the “Saved Searches” button on a Directory page).


With this functionality users can:

  1. Save their searches with the filters and keywords they've used on the Innovation, Funding and Funder Directories.
  2. Have unlimited Saved Searches with customized names for each.
  3. Easily access all of these from their Dashboard.
  4. Edit or add new Saved Searches at any time.

Check out this quick video to see how it works:



Creating a new saved search or updating an existing one is extremely easy. Once you’ve got your search query entered, click on “SAVE” and follow the steps on the screen.




Looking Ahead

We are exploring alerts when new items that match your saved searches are added to GIE. What other changes/additions should we make? Let us know your suggestions and how you like the feature via email here.
