If your Content Search administrator has enabled searching for you, you can conduct either a simple search or an advanced search (with more search options). Your administrator may also have enabled you to define saved searches.
You can run a simple search without using any special syntax. A simple search looks for the words or phrase in the body, title, file name, description, and keywords of documents.
You can search for a single word, multiple words, or a phrase.
Searches are case-sensitive: a search for
does not produce the same results as a search for
To make a simple search:
To search for a single word, just type the word; for example,
To search for more than one word, type the words; for example,
To search for a phrase, enclose the words of the phrase in double
quotes; for example,
You can narrow your search results by creating advanced search criteria (as many as you like).
To make an advanced search:
In this advanced search example, three criteria are set:
The search results contain documents that satisfy all three criteria: (1)
the document body contains the words
markets, and (2)
the keywords contain
or both, and (3) the title does not contain the words
How advanced search with multiple criteria works
If you set multiple search criteria with the Add More Criteria button, then Content Search groups your criteria like this when you run the search:
Then the three groups of criteria are combined into one query and linked by AND. So the software searches for "the Must Contain group" AND "the Must Not Contain group" AND "the Could Contain group."
You can define saved searches if your administrator has enabled this feature for you.
