Classifications & Affiliations searching queries the database using the data entered on Character and Location records, allowing the user to find very specific data and statistics.

Choose the  radio button to locate characters who have classifications for ALL items in the above list. Only characters who have all three classifications shown above will appear in the result list.

Choose the   radio button to locate characters who have classifications for ANY items in the above list. Characters who have any of the three classifications shown above will appear in the result list.

Select a Classification or Affiliation from the dropdown and click  to add it to the Search List.

The result list will update in real time when each search term is added or removed.

Adding the second search term narrows the result list further.

You can keep adding more search terms to narrow the result list even further.
