How to Search and Filter

The Desired Vehicle modal window is designed to search for vehicles and filter through in-stock inventory based off set criteria. Search Criteria controls the data returned in the Inventory search. The user must click Search to query the database when entering and editing data in the four Search Criteria fields. Filter Criteria can be used to narrow down the inventory search and works in real-time without clicking Search. Matching vehicles are displayed at the bottom of the page under In-Stock Inventory Search.  

TIP: Using fewer Search Criteria initially will return more results. Use additional Filter Criteria to narrow down the In-Stock Inventory Search. 

  1. Vehicle Inventory and Conversion -  These look-up fields follow standard Salesforce search capabilities and can be used to quickly find known items by Name, Description or Number. All available Criteria fields will automatically populate when a vehicle is entered into the look-up. 
  2. Search Criteria -  Enter any combination of Year, Make, Model and Trim Level before clicking Search to return possible matches. 
  3. Filter Criteria -  Exterior Color, Interior Color, New/Used, and VIN offer additional layers to filter your search query in real time. Help narrow down the search results with your customer's specific requests.   
  4. Search -  Click the Search button after adding or changing Search Criteria to update the search results. The Search button can be used without entering any Search Criteria. When left blank it will return all vehicles in stock.
