Search for Organizations

Quickly find the organizations you're looking for.

  1. On the Administrator Panel in the Organizations section, select Organizations.
  2. Select the type of information to search:
    • Organization ID: Searches for text that appears in the organization's Organization ID.
    • Organization Name: Searches for text that appears in the organization's Organization Name.
    • Description: Searches for text that appears in the organization's Description.
    • Leader: Searches for text in the leader's Username. Follow the username convention at your institution to improve search results. For example, if the leader's name is Joe Bell but the username is jbell, searching for "Joe Bell" will not produce successful results.
    • Data Source Key: Searches for text that appears in the data source identifier in the Blackboard Learn database. Data source keys can contain letters, numbers, and underscores, but no spaces or other special characters.
  3. Select a search condition from the list: Contains, Equal To, Starts With, or Not Blank.
  4. Provide the text to search for. The search is not case-sensitive. For example, if you selected the Starts With search condition, typing either "Shakespeare Recitation" or "shakespeare recitation" into the search field will find organizations named "Shakespeare Recitation Club," "Shakespeare Recitation Competitors," and "Shakespeare Recitation Group."
  5. Select whether to search for organizations created Before or After a specified date.
  6. Provide a date in the Date Created field or select the calendar icon and select a date to select it.
  7. Select All Organizations or limit the search to a specific domain by selecting the domain from the list.
  8. Select Go.
