Search agents use Awasu's advanced search engine to constantly monitor the content coming in on your channels and alert you to things that you are interested in.
To create a new search agent, choose New search agent from the File menu or right-click in the My Searches window in the Control Center. Enter a search query to specify what you want to look for and the search agent will then monitor your channels for it.
When a search agent finds channels or feed items that match what it has been told to look for, it will flag them with a special icon.
Also, if you choose to highlight matching items and channels with a colour (as in the screenshot above), anything found by the search agent will be highlighted in that colour. If a channel or item is being flagged by more than one search agent, right-click on it and choose Search agents to see which ones are flagging it.
