The purpose of this article is to provide information to Outreach users regarding searching the Outreach platform.
Outreach is built to increase your pipeline and by allowing you to email a lot of prospects. Searching for single prospects takes a long time, so it's better to segment searches using Boolean searches.
- Outreach Users
- All Custom Fields within Outreach are stored as text strings. These can be captured as part of your search but will not be included as part of a Range Search.
- We cannot search fields by "greater than" or "less than" values, but you can search by ranges. For example, search for number ranges, including in custom fields. If you have a field that uses numbers, like an engagement score or number of people a company, you can search by the range to pull in everyone in that given range. For example, my 'score' field is show size so I want to search everyone with from sizes 1 to 100 'score:[0 TO 100]' This only applies to specific numeric value fields such as Score or Date Ranges.
Searchable Fields and Formatting Your Search
Below is a chart containing available attributes a that you can use to search in Outreach. The general format is example:"" (or -example:"" for the inverse). The quotation marks ("") are there so that Outreach can search for everything in between them. Having nothing in between means it will search for prospects that have nothing in that field. So, if you'd like to search for prospects that do not have a company listed, you can search using company:"" and the search will populate with prospects that do not have a company.

Excluding Fields in your Search
Sometimes it might be easier to find information by excluding specific fields. Simply adding a "-" in front of your searches will search for everyone but the group.
It might be useful to search for prospects who are in an active sequence. To do that, use the search
Note: All custom fields within Outreach are stored as text strings. These can be captured as part of your searc but will not be included as part of a range search.
Suppose you want to isolate your searches further. You can add in AND or OR to include additional fields. The AND search will include both fields while the OR addition will search for one or the other.
Note: We cannot search fields by "greater than" or "less than" values, but you can search by ranges. For example, search for number ranges, including in custom fields. If you have a field that uses numbers, like an engagement score or number of people a company, you can search by the range to pull in everyone in that given range. For example, my 'score' field is show size so I want to search everyone with from sizes 1 to 100 'score:[0 TO 100]' This only applies to specific numeric value fields such as Score or Date Ranges.
You can also search for dates by using [YYYY-MM-DD TO YYYY-MM-DD] for example: "touched_at:[2017-02-02 TO 2017-02-05]"
* - match any characters before or after the insertion of the asterisk. For example, first_name:"a*" will pull up any name whose name starts with a.
? - match a single character. For example, first_name:"and?" would pull up any name that is four letters and begins with "and".
