What is a Recent or Favorite Filter?

When performing a search using Nexis Uni®, you can select any number of pre-search filters to help limit your search results to the information you want to view. This can make it easier to review your results and make the best decision for continuing your research.

Sometimes you may find you want to reuse filters you've already applied to a search. You can do this using either of these methods:

  • You can explicitly save these filters as favorites.
  • You can have Nexis Uni automatically keep a short history of filters you've applied to searches you've performed.

Then, when performing new searches, you can review and use either a favorite filter or a recently used filter.

You access both your favorite filters and recently used filters from the Recent & Favorites page of the Filters drop-down list. While viewing this list, you can remove filters you no longer want to view or use. Additionally, if you are viewing a recently used filter and you want to save it as a favorite, you can select the Favorites icon () next to it.

If you don't want to keep a record of your recently used filters, you can clear this option at Settings > Nexis Uni.
