You can save a lot of time if you save your search ;). Thankfully, that's pretty easy to do. Anytime you find yourself working with a complex query that you might use again, it's probably a good idea to save it. You can always archive it or delete it later.

Save a search
To save any search, click on the Save this search button, give it a name, and click Save.
Load a saved search
Once you have saved a search, it will appear in a Saved Searches menu, where you can easily get to it with a single click:
Update a saved search
If you want to make a change to a saved search, navigate to the saved search on the Constituents > All constituents page:
Then click the Save this search button and then pick one of your previously saved searches from the -- Update existing-- menu:
Make your update to the search criteria. You can change the name of the search here as well. Then click "Save".
You can also make this change from Home > Saved searches:

Shared searches will then be viewable in the Advanced search box, in the upper right corner:
Delete a saved search
You can delete a saved search by navigating to the Home tab and then to "Saved searches". Here you have the option to either delete the saved search or view or update it:
