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
|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.
