Search Guidelines

  • Search returns results on whole word matches.
  • Searches based on common words like "the" and "and" do not return results.
  • The search criteria is not case-sensitive.
  • Find results with all of the words by adding a "+" before each word or placing the keyword "AND" between each word. For example: +XDrive +San + Francisco XDrive AND San AND Francisco.
  • Find results with the exact phrase by placing the phrase within quotes. For example: "Document Management Suite"
  • By default, you are finding results with at least one of the words. If you enter more than one word, files with at least one match are returned.
  • Find results without the words by passing in a desired match along with a word to exclude. The word(s) to be excluded are identified by adding a "-" before each word. For example, to retrieve all documents containing "2006 Expense Report" but excluding documents related to "Conventions" +2006 +expense +report —conventions
