contentWEB documentation – version 3.5

7.3.Quick search

The quick search function of contentWEB enables searching only in one single folder – the folder that is selected in the left navigation pane in the tree view. Quick search supports only text-based fields (e.g. Title, Subject). To start the search, connect to the desired folder in the “Connect to” list and locate the desired folder/subfolder in the navigation pane. Then type the searched phrase into the search box located above the list view.
The quick search criteria may be changed in the UI settings. This will be detailed in chapter Editing Quick, Basic and Advanced search criteria of this guide later on.
