Use the Query module to create customized database queries on your Chameleon data types.

You can create and manage your Queries in Flow. From the Home page, select Content Control > Query.

Add New Query

You can add new Queries to the All Queries list or to a Query Playlist. The All Queries  list serves as the master list of queries whereas a Query Playlist simply holds a reference to the Query that exists in the master query list.  If adding a new query to a Query Playlist, the new query is first added to the All Queries master list, and then a reference item to the query is added to the playlist.

  1. Select a list - either choose the All Queries list or a Query Playlist.
  2. Click on the Add New button. 

  3. You can add a query manually or by using the Query Wizard. Click on the Add Now button if you want to save the query.
    1. Using Manual Entry:
    2. Using Query Wizard:
