When you go to the menu Search from the list of menus on your left, you will see this screen with all your searches on the right, people from the search you have selected in the center and the different filters on top. These filters are Enter filter words, Filter on tags, Expandi tags, Filter on Status, Filter on campaign, Export, Assign to a campaign, Assign all results, Reaction type, Show all and Delete.
Enter filter words
Enter filter words which will be looked up in the person’s name, phone number, address, company name, job title and placeholders.
Filter on tags
The Filter on tags button is used when you have used different tags and keywords in LinkedIn. If you have created them in LinkedIn, they will also appear here.
You can filter on already existing tags. The Expandi tags button uses tags that were created in Expandi.
You can create tags when you click the wand icon which opens a Tag management where you can create your own tags in Expandi. To apply a tag you first need to select a person/multiple people and then choose from the list of tags you have created.
You can also create tags in the Placeholders and My Network menus, then choose the Tag Management tool (wand icon).
Filter on Status
Status means the kind of connection/relationship you have with a person. They can be Contact (1st connection), Searched (you have searched their profile but have not sent a connection request), New contact (recently added to your first degree connection), Connect Requested (you have sent a connection request to that person), Disconnected (you or them disconnected with each other).
Filter on Campaign
When you click on filter on campaign, you can choose from the list of your campaigns. When you choose one or more campaigns, you will see the people who are part of that/these campaigns.
This section can also be found in the article Export a CSV. Enter the filters you want (such as status, tags, campaign, search or keywords). You can also select the people you want to export. Click on Export and choose between the three options – Mail selected, filtered or all contacts. After you choose the option you want, you will be send a CSV to your mail address.
A new feature that Expandi has is to manually push the people through a web hook. You can do it in to ways - either select the people you want to push, or apply filters and push everyone who matches these filters.
Assign to a campaign
The button Assign to a campaign will be active only if you have selected people from your search. When you click on the button Assign to a campaign, this page will appear – there you have to choose which campaign you want to assign people to. You can select a start time of your choice or Expandi can do it automatically. To finish the task, just click on Add selected contacts to campaign.
Assign all results
The button Assign all results will always be available to you. You don’t need to select people. All people who are filtered on tags, campaigns, etc. who are shown on your screen right now, will be added to the campaign you select. You will get the same screen you would if you had clicked on Assign to a campaign. You can select a start time of your choice or Expandi can do it automatically. To finish the task, just click on Add selected contacts to campaign.
The Reaction type filter will appear only when you select a Post engagement search. There are five type of reactions and they match the LinkedIn reactions to the posts – Like, Praise (Celebrate), Empathy (love), Interest (insightful), Maybe (curious).
Just like the filter Reactions, the filter Show all will appear only for Post engagement search. It is self-explanatory – you can choose between people who have commented on the post you used for your Post engagement search, or the people who have not commented.
To use the button Delete, you first need to select people from the list. By clicking on the button Delete, you are going to delete the people who are currently selected.
