An organization is building a query. They see that Control>Query and Advanced Search through Contacts>Individuals both query on records. This solution describes a few differences between the 2 query functions.
Control>Query This method of query allows the user to select system generated queries and customized queries. It also allows the user to select and input, output, filters, and organize how the results are displayed.
Contacts>Individuals: Advanced Search Advanced Search allows the user to select the input, but no output. As a result, this is a more simplified query process. It will display the results on screen, and allow the records to be batch updated or bulk deleted.
