To search a document in AODocs in a specific view, you can write your keywords into the search bar and click on the search button (1).
The search results (2) will include all the documents of which the title or any property matches the searched keywords.
In Document Management libraries, you can extend the scope of search by selecting “Search in attached files” (3) to display documents that contain the keywords within the content of their attachments (4).
Note: In Team Folders and Secured Folders, the "Search in attached files" option is always enabled and is not displayed in AODocs User Interface.
If your current view has a browsing option set on ”Browse by Folder”, you can:
- untick the checkbox "Include results from subfolders"(5): Only search results in the current selected folder will be displayed
- tick the checkbox "Include results from subfolders"(5): Results in the current selected folder and in all its subfolders will be displayed.
You can also do complex searches by property types and with advanced search operators.
