Search And Filter Your Contests

Filters
The contest filters menu

Contests for Pages is almost 10 years old and we have many long time customers that created hundreds of contests over the last few years. We heard from these customers that it can be difficult and frustrating to find old contests. At 5 contests per page, it requires a lot of patience to browse back through all previous contests. Today we are happy to finally make it easier to search and filter contests.

At the bottom of the page showing all your contests, next to the pagination, you will now see a button with a magnifying glass icon. This button will only appear if you created at least 15 contests. Click it to reveal the search menu. There are 3 criteria you can use to filter your contests:

  • A range of date for the time of creation of the contest
  • The title of the contest
  • An active/closed toggle for the current status of the contest

We hope this new feature will help our loyal and curious customers find old contests more easily!

One more thing!

While we were at it, we also improved the filters to search answers. It is now possible to filter for a range of date and select more than one option for multiple-choice question filters. So if, for example, you were doing a "Favorite Christmas Movie" voting, you could filter answers to see only participants that answered a week ago and selected "The Grinch" or "Home Alone" as their answer.

Merry searching and happy New Year!
