Managing a large number of orders at the same time could be a very time-consuming and messy task, especially for the inexperienced.
To reduce the unnecessary time wasted, Shopify allows store owners to use bulk actions with a filter and save their searches. Saving searches is particularly useful for those search queries that you use frequently. It saves you from having to enter the same keywords over and over again, which produces faster results when you enter the same query the next time.
This feature is currently only available on the Desktop platform.
