Lock this search: choose between a standard or locked search.
Standard vs. Locked Saved Searches
Standard: the saved search remains “dynamic,” or continues to update results based on the criteria of the saved search. For example, if a search is based on tag activity, the results will change as tags are added or removed. Similarly, If a search is based on document characteristics (metadata or keywords), the results will change as new documents are uploaded into the project.
Locked: the saved search results are a snapshot of the results based on the criteria when the saved search was run and locked. Instead of running a search based on the criteria as in a Standard Saved Search, a Locked Saved Search recalls a static list of the Logikcull Document IDs.
Family Inclusion and Review Set Options for Locked Saved Searches 🔒
Locking a saved search is required for family inclusion and review sets.
Include families (checkbox): adds family members that are related to, but not part of, the current search results.
Split into review sets: splits results into batches that can be assigned to users for review. Enter the number of review sets (batches) to be created. The average document count per set is also provided.
ℹ️ To learn more about creating review sets and assigning them to other users, see 🔗 Assigning Documents to Review Sets

Reviewers cannot see documents in a review set; invited to an "empty project"
Reviewer-level users can only see documents in a project that are assigned to them. If a reviewer cannot see any documents when they look in the project, it is likely the documents were not assigned to them.
Unexpected results when searching on a saved search:
⚠️ Important note about filter views and saved searches ⚠️
The deduplication filter view and culled/unculled filter view are each saved as parameters in a saved search. If you are in the Global Dedupe view and you run a saved search that was saved in the No Dedupe view, the filter view will update (to No Dedupe) to reflect the parameters of the saved search. Learn more about deduplication here. 🔗
If you run a saved search using the Advanced Search Builder, the filter view will not be updated automatically. The best practice is to limit use of the Advanced Search Builder to saved searches that all share the same filter view.
