Search and Saved Search Criteria

Living Spec encourages you and your team to collect and capture ideas, which can evolve into large projects or new products and systems.

As your documents grow, we ensure that no detail is hidden or falls through the cracks. Whether navigating complex structures or searching for specific tasks or files, our powerful Search feature empowers you to quickly find information across documents, no matter how simple or complex they are.

Living Spec also allows you to save search and filter criteria for reuse throughout the platform.
