Multiple identical searches

If I have multiple elements on a single page layout that each perform the same search, but are in different groups hidden by conditions until needed, is Bubble having to perform this same search multiple times?

Is there some way to perform a search once for a page and then share that result among the other groups, which may be hidden without having to copy the same search details for each element?

Normally, if the request is exactly the same, Bubble will perform it once.
But… you can always resuse the data from another group or element (in most case). Just select it from the dropdown in selection for data source.
If not possible, you can also choose to create a state in page element and on page load, set this state with the search result.
