What's Wix Universal Search and How Can It Help You?

Updated: Sep 20, 2023

If you're a Wix user, this tool will make your life so much easier.


It's a bit like having Google inside the Wix Dashboard.


You can search for anything from "Wix Tools" to "Wix Support." You'll be able to find what you need in seconds, even if it's been awhile since you've been in there!


I call it "Wix Universal Search". And, it's a beauty. Let's dive in.

The Key Points

Wix Universal Search lets you do 3 main things:

  1. Access and manage Wix tools and settings

  2. Integrate solutions from the Wix App Market to power your Wix website

  3. View Wix support help articles



Access and manage Wix tools and settings

The Wix Dashboard is the backend of your website. Typically, it's where you set up the rules for how the Wix website and its apps work.


When you get started, you'll have only the very basics within Wix. As your business grows, so will your website. It can then become hard to find what you're looking for. That's where the Wix Universal Search comes in.

How do I find Wix Universal Search? (you might be asking)

Great! I'm so glad that you did.

  1. Start by visiting https://wix.com/my-account (or, if you have multiple sites, go here: https://wix.com/my-account/site-selector/)

  2. Once there, look at the top and middle of your screen where it says "Search…"

  3. Voilà! Begin your searching adventures.

You're now able to find your Wix Event that begins next week to send that reminder email to your attendees.

You're now able to search for a Wix Contact, Lauren, to whom you need to send a personalized message.

And, you're now even able to type in "Contributor" to add your favorite team member 😉 to your Wix website.

Next up…


Adding apps to your website from the Wix App Market.

You can use the Wix App Market to find apps that will help you on your website. Similar to how apps provide more value to you on your mobile phone, you can use apps to take your experience on Wix even further —and the same can be said about the value you provide to your website visitors.


On the Wix App Market, there are over 300 web apps for your site. Most of them are free and can be added to your website with just a few clicks. One app I have enjoyed using more recently is called Shippo. It helps a client of mine send 300+ packages every month without much effort.


If you don't know the specific app you're searching for, that's okay. Begin by typing any term that sounds close to what you want to offer, sort of how you might search on Google. Examples might include queries, such as: Dropshipping, Art Store, or Testimonials. Shortly, you'll see several apps that can help you fulfill that need for your site.


There you go, and now your website has been super-powered!


Lastly, yet most importantly…



View the Wix Support help articles to get support

Within your Wix Site Dashboard, you're able to type in a question or term you don't understand and get connected with a support article instantly from the Wix Help Center.


Think of Wix's Universal Search as a shortcut to the Wix Support Center. The Wix Support Center provides access to thousands of expertly written articles and how-tos, as well as valuable video tutorials.


Here's one of my favorite support articles:


The reason: Many people find the approach to getting started for free a welcoming feeling. I agree. Most other website platforms begin to charge you upon sign-up, whereas on Wix, you can get started and even stay on — entirely for free. How neat is that?



If you don't find what you're looking for, well The Wix Support Center is the place where you can talk directly with Wix's Support Team. And, if that's not enough, you can ask your question or post a new one in the Wix Community Forums.


That about wrap's up this week's tip. Let me know if you found this helpful. Share it with a friend. And, tell me what else you want to learn.


You can access the Wix Universal Search in your Wix Dashboard (again, top middle of your screen), and you'll now find it even easy to navigate around.


If you would like more information about Wix's Universal Search, the Wix Dashboard, or anything else Wix, please send me a quick reply.


Enjoy,

Matt
