Simple Searching Searching


Type your search into the search box at the top right of the screen: 


titleSearching for Attachments

When searching for attachments by name, the file extension is considered part of the last word in the name.  So, entering answerstest will not bring up answerstest.docx because answerstest is not the full string.   To retrieve this attachment, you must use answerstest.docx or the wildcard character (so a partial string matches):  answerstest*


Advanced Searching


Exact Phrase

Use double quotes around the phrase. 


Ex:  "title:  Wireless" will find pages that have the word, "wireless" in the page title.

Wildcard Searches

Single Character

To search for  a word with any character at a single position within the word, use ?    a question mark: ?    

Ex:  si?e  will find pages with "site," "size," "side," or any other character at the 3rd position.

Multi Character

To search for word that begin with the same string, use *   an asterisk: *   

Ex:  "print*"  will find pages with containing the words, "printer," "printing," and any other word that begins with "print."


You can't use the wildcards at the beginning of a word! However, but you can use them in the middle or at the end of a word: 
*systems is - invalid.
system* is - valid.
iP*d is - valid.
