TeamConnect Search Modifiers

TeamConnect's search feature allows the following search modifiers to improve results. Refer to the table below for examples and details.


  • Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) must be written in all caps.
  • Use quotation marks around separate words or phrases for best results. Multiple words without the quotation marks present will default to the OR operator described below.
  • Modifiers are able to be grouped for more precise search results. Use parentheses to separate phrases with different modifiers.For example:
    (Johnson OR Roger) AND YonderCorp
Search Modifier Details Examples


The AND operator matches search items where both terms exist anywhere within the object, such as the contact name, memo text, or company name. The && expression can also be used in place of AND.

"Johnson" AND "LegalCorp"

"Accrual" AND "January"

"Bowie" && "Harvey Smith"

OR The OR operator links two terms and finds a matching document if either of the terms exist in a document. The || expression can also be used in place of OR.

"LegalCorp Holdings" OR "LegalCore"

"Johnson Roger" || "Roger Johnson"

Proximity The proximity operator (~#) allows users to find words within a given range of each other. After entering a phrase, enter a number to find words within that specific distance. "invoice Canada"~10 (finds results where the words 'invoice' and 'Canada' are within 10 words of each other)
Fuzzy Fuzzy searches provide users with the ability to find words similar in spelling to a given term. This modifier is accessed by appending the ~ symbol to the end of a single search term. Rodgers~

Wildcard searches look for words that match the search input with variance in a selected character. Replace a character with * or ? in a single word to return results matching all input besides the Wildcard. The ? looks for a single letter replacement. The * looks for multiple characters.

Wildcard does not function for multiple terms.

To search for beat or best, enter be?t

To search for John, Johns, Johnson, enter John*

To search for rouge or range, enter r*nge.
