Search for documents across all your libraries

To search for a document across all your AODocs libraries, use the cross-library search bar at the top of your AODocs homepage.

1. Enter one or more keywords and press the search button.

Note: The cross-library search allows keyword searches only. Searching for properties (or metadata) is possible only when searching for documents within a library

The result shows a list of documents corresponding to the keyword you entered. They are displayed with the columns Title, Last update, Last update author and Library name.

2. To open a document, press its title. 

You can also open a library, by pressing its name. You are directed to the library homepage.

  • I need to find out how to add metadata to a document, and to know if I have to do anything special with uploading the document in order to add the metadata.

    I've spent about 45 minutes so far searching for this information.

    I need a table of contents / index of the tutorials / help texts so I can look for what I'm needing, because the natural language search is *not* getting me what I want to find.

  • Hi Debra,
    You will first need to have some metadata configured on your document class of your library:
    https://support.aodocs.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000051523-Configure-custom-properties

    Once they are configured any contributor to your document class should be able to use them.https://support.aodocs.com/hc/en-us/articles/206199210-Edit-custom-properties

    Keep in mind that:
