PDM search card to show only non-CAD files?

Question asked by Grant Kirkland on Apr 16, 2018

I would like to limit search results (either by the search card or by hiding file types) so that only non-CAD file types are shown. Reason being, we have some viewer licenses and they are saying all of the CAD files make the search results confusing. They only need to view and print pdf, jpeg, doc, xls, etc.


I found S-054267: How can a search card in SOLIDWORKS® Enterprise PDM be used to only search for filenames within a specific file type?


But after testing this method the search speed is significantly slower, and it's only limited to one file type.


I'm coming up short on how to solve this problem. Does anyone have any ideas?
