There is a really nice feature in Query Builder that you need to know about, and I can’t believe I have not blogged about this already! It is the Toggle Link Target link at the bottom of your query results. This link allows you to click on a name in your query results and look at that person’s record, even editing it if you need to, without losing your query results.
The way the toggle works (if you haven’t used it) is like this: after you click the link, your query results will be retained on one tab and a new tab will be opened for the person whose name you clicked. This allows you to move back and forth between your query and the person’s record. When you return to the tab with your query results, you can click on another person. Each time you click a different name, the people record on the other tab changes to that person. It’s pretty cool!
If you like looking at windows side-by-side, just drag one tab off to the side, out of the main window. Voila! Two windows – one with the query and one with the person. I love using it this way, because I can see the person page changing in one tab as I click a name in the query results in the other tab. It’s like magic!
Remember, this is a toggle. One click turns it on; another click turns it off.
I love this feature and use it all the time! See image below.
