Tame your computer – find a needle in a haystack

9 Nov

OpenText document management software products reduce time spent reviewing documents, helping you find your way through the version chaos. Searching in Livelink is easy. Just above the search bar there are some great (sometimes unnoticed) buttons that can help you find a needle in a haystack.  For example, if you know the item you are looking for is an Excel file you can tell Livelink to display Excel files only in the search result.

Here’s how:

  1. Click on the Select Searchable Type button (indicated by a star).
  2. Select the item type you are looking for.
  3. Click the Go button. (Pressing the ENTER key won’t work.)

If you want to refine your search, simply type one or more search terms (the words or phrase that best describe the information you want to find) into the search bar and click on the Go button or press the ENTER key. (Don’t forget the double quotes – “ ” – if you are using a fixed sequence of one or more words, such as “finding items you added”. Or combine it with any of the other useful buttons, such as Select Creator to find only those Excel files added by you and/or the Select Modification Time Period button to find only those Excel files added by you but modified by anybody else in the past month or so.
