Location and Radius Searching

Big Biller’s search function allows you to quickly get your hands on a specific group of records. This feature allows you to search on keywords, specific Datasheet fields, and/or location.

The good news is that the search interface is consistent across the People, Company, and Job Order databases. So, if you know how to search People records by location, you can easily do the same for your Company and Job Order searches as well.

To start a new location search:

  • Navigate to the corresponding Dashboard in the Main Navigation Bar
    • For this example, we’ll run a People search
  • Locate the Search bar at the top of the page and enter any applicable keywords, if necessary
  • Enter a location into the corresponding field. By default, this field will always search on the home address.
    • To run a radius search (25 miles by default):
      • Enter a “City, State” OR enter a zip code in the Location field
      • Examples –
        • Cleveland, OH
        • Orlando, FL
        • 44718
    • To run a search by state(s):
      • Enter the full state name(s) OR the abbreviation of the state(s) you wish to search
        • Multiple states or state abbreviations should be separated by a comma
      • Examples –
        • Florida
        • FL
        • OH, PA, VA
        • Ohio, Pennsylvania

  • Click the Search button when complete

  • Once the search is run, you can always tweak the location and/or radius by utilizing the filters on the left side of your search results
  • If searching based on City+State or Zip, you’ll see a Search Radius in Miles drop-down which will allow you to narrow or broaden your results by radius

  • You can also click on the Modify Search link to the right of the search bar to tweak your search and/or location further


If you wish to run an initial location search with a radius other than 25 miles:

  • Navigate to the corresponding Dashboard in the Main Navigation Bar
    • For this example, we will run a People search
  • Click on the Advanced link to the right of the search bar

  • Enter a location into the corresponding field. By default, this field will always search on the home address.
    • To run a radius search:
      • Select a mile radius from the drop-down
      • Enter a “City, State” OR enter a zip code in the Location field
      • Examples –
        • Cleveland, OH
        • Orlando, FL
        • 44718
      • Determine whether you want to also search work address
        • Checking multiple boxes would result in an OR search
        • Note: Relocation searching is only available when searching by state
          • For example, if you wanted to search all the people in your database who live OR work OR want to relocate to Florida
      • Select a Country, if applicable
  • Apply any additional search criteria as necessary and click the Run Search button in the bottom left corner of the page once complete
