Hi,

RT 3.4
Solaris
MySQL

Is it possible to create a button which will execute a saved search?
Is it possible to have the results of a search displayed in a new window
or tab?

Thanks,
Ron

Hey Ron,

My workaround to this is that I bookmarked all my frequently run
searches and stuck them in a folder in my bookmarks toolbar. Works
great if you don’t need to share with a lot of people and just need
something simple to work with.

To bookmark a search, create or load it, then right click on the “show
results” button and select book mark this link.

In theory, you could add buttons using the bookmarks URL.

HTH,

Scott

I think the way we do it with our current working rt box is using RSS
with Firefox. Create your query, save it then go do the search… we
have an RSS link at the bottom wich you can then add as a live bookmark
to firefox or your favorite rss reader.

BTW, I’m new at RT and I’m just setting up a new instance of it for
testing so I don’t know if the RSS is a custom thing or if it’s a
default on standard installs…

Those options look promising. I’m new to RT as well and the RSS is
there, along with some other features.

Cool… I thought maybe it was a custom thing on the RT that is already
setup at my new job. So using Firefox… (you are using it right?) copy
the link location for the RSS, then add it via bookmark manager to
firefox… that worked for me so far.From: rt-users-bounces@lists.bestpractical.com
