    Hi Gary,

    Great video (again). Another point to add value to your saved search, which you're probably aware of, is to use the view functionality, 'Arrange By'.

    e.g. Say I want to list Pages documents when they were created.

    Create a search as you describe in your video on Pages documents.

    Then go to: Finder > View > Arrange By > Date Created. Then the magic happens.

    It groups the documents by, Previous 7 Days, Previous 30 Days, Months then Years.
