FAQ: Is it possible to search for multiple business names at the same time in the Business Analyst Web App?

Question

Is it possible to search for multiple business names at the same time in the Business Analyst Web App?

Answer

Yes, it is possible to search for multiple business names by using the Business and Facilities Search in the Business Analyst Web App. This reduces the amount of time users require to search for multiple business names.

Searching for multiple business names can be done by separating the search terms with a semicolon. When searching for multiple terms separated by "and" or a comma, no results are returned. Therefore, to search for more than one business names, follow the steps below.

  1. In the Maps tab, click the Search tool drop-down arrow and select Business and Facilities Search.
