Public Search Security

Security Note

To update security for public searches, you'll need the following setting enabled in Series25 Group Administration: Admin: 16.0 Change Security Configurations = Yes.

Public search security allows you to control which public searches are available in dropdown menus for each of your security groups. If no public searches are set for a security group, then users in that group will see all available public searches.
