Pivot from Tag to Sample Searches
You can now quickly perform a search for samples based on the results of a tag search.
  1. Start an AutoFocus tag search.
  2. Click
    Search for these tags.

    The number of tags used in the sample search is based on the number of results shown on the tag search results page. For example, if there are 82 tag results but the page is set to show a maximum of 50 tags, only 50 tags will be used by the sample search.
  3. AutoFocus automatically initiates a sample search based on the tag search results.
