I just looked at my last 100 finds, and 58 of them are 'unlisted'.

Re-record each unlisted find and place LbNA as the first word in the new title. Then search that word (LbNA). There's your list! Then go through again and delete the old finds. Have fun! 🤡🤓🤔

Try this:
Go to an "all" and ""Owner" search which should show up to 500.

I've got the same problem. We did some unlisted series this weekend that aren't showing

There's a way! Did I miss this before or was it added? There's a box for "starts with" at the top. So to search for a box you found that starts with the letter "M" but you don't know what year you found it, put the letter "M" in that box and set the other search parameters to "All" and "Alphabetical". That's good. That's actually better than it was before. I pulled up 309 boxes that start with the letter 'M'. Was that "starts with" box always there and I just didn't see it? Thank you Ryan!

Having "unlisted" as a filter type on the profile page would be great!

I'm not sure what you mean. There's already options to download your "unlisted finds" and "unlisted attempts" along with the other options.

When I click on My Profile and then click on my Finds number , I get a listing of all of my finds. What I naively had in my mind was an entry under "Box Type" at the top of the page that was "Unlisted".

The download my unlisted finds or attempts - is this using Advanced Search?

Feel free to ignore comment chain as well.....

It's not actually a box "type," though. Even unlisted boxes can be categorized as traditional finds, postals, LTCs, etc. For this to work, I'd have to add another option to distinguish between listed boxes, unlisted boxes and both types of boxes.

No, the links are at the end of your profile page. These links aren't actually "searches" (which can be very slow). Instead, they're largely just data dumps of the AQ database. Each of the links dumps the relevant data from a different table in the database.
