In the top right corner in INTERAXO you will find the search tool. Enter the text to search for.
If you get large numbers of search results, only the first 50 will be displayed. It may therefore be advisable to be more specific when searching. You can also try to reduce the number of folders or use the standard Windows search functionality (see below).
We have put together some tips to make it easier to find exactly what you are looking for.
One tip is to use filtering, grouping or sorting in the folders.
NB! Searches apply within a community.
Searching for content in any room to which you have access
- Go to My rooms (the overview of the rooms to which you have access)
- Type in the text string to search for in the search box in the top right corner
- Click on the Search button to search
Searching for content in one specific room
- Go to the specific room (and folder) where you want to perform the search
- Enter the search text in the search field and click on the Search button
The search results are displayed on a separate page. You can refine the search result by changing your search string and/or using standard the Windows search functionality. This is described further down.
If you want to expand the search results to multiple folders and/or rooms, click on the "x" by the folder or room names that precede the search string.
Using special characters (wildcards) in the search string
Wildcards can be used to replace one or more arbitrary characters in the search string. By using wildcards, you get more search result simultaneously with similar names or text. You can also find what you are looking for even if you only remember part of a name or word.
Using * and ? in the search box
A question mark (?) indicates an arbitrary character and a star/asterisk (*) represents any number of arbitrary characters. Below are some examples to explain this:
* Truncation, e.g. plan* searches anything that begins with plan: "Plan 00", "plan02", "plan drawing" etc.
? Optional sign of a given space in the search string, for example. room??? will find "room002", "room112" etc.
a* - match all files with names beginning with "a"
ab?. txt - match for example "Abc.txt" and "abd.txt" but not "Abcd.txt"
test. * - match all files that start with test regardless of suffix, e.g. "Test.txt" and "test.dwg"
Using AND, OR and NOT in your search string
When you specify multiple words as the search text, the search looks for content that contain at least one of the keywords. If you only want results that contain all the keywords you need to use AND between the words.
+, AND, &: Both or all criteria must be met. Typically restrict search results
|, OR: At least one criterion must be met
Some more examples:
"Old methods" is the same as "old OR methods" which matches anything that contains the word "old", "methods" or both
"Old AND methods" will only give results for content that contains both words
If you get unwanted results, the word NOT may be used before the search text; possibly in combination with wildcards:
ro* AND NOT routine will match the word "rock" but not "routine"
