    Limited Search Functionality

    Robert Dilgard

      When searching for a file using the description, users don't always know the exact order of the words that they are looking for. Using the wildcard * between words should allow EPDM to return results with those words in any order.  Attached is an image with three screen shots showing the limits of EPDM search.

       

       

      Does anyone know of a workaround that is fast and simple for the end user?  Our end goal is to have the same basic search functionality that is included in Windows.

       

      Our VAR suggested Solution ID # S-058999, but using the OR statements inside the "Variable Search" card is time consuming and not an intuitive solution.  We have considered using the report generator but heard that it doesn't generate links to the files that it finds.

       

      I have created Enhancement Request # 1-5080519921  for added search functionality in EPDM.

          if i want to find something i put it in inverted comas. "search word". it will return anything that has what is in the inverted comas in it. so if you want a specific file you can find just it or you can get anything that has just one word "file report 5" or just "report". not sure that will help with multiple words. but give it a try. also a + between the words should return strings in any order. "5" + "report" + "file".
