Search


Search can be accessed from the toolbar in two ways. Using the search directly from the toolbar or by clicking the Search button and navigating to the search page. 


Search by typing in a keyword.


Search can be enhanced by adding custom search operators. Operators provide on-demand browsing of available terms. After typing an operator, use the down arrow to scroll through the available terms, press enter to select the term (quotes around the term will automatically populate). Continue typing to filter the dropdown.

Operator Description
is:
+
Adds items that match the Term from search results. This operator is chainable with other operators and keywords.

Examples:
is:"Article"
Results will be any item that is annotated with the "Article" Term.

is:"Article" +"Data Science"
Results will be any item that is annotated with the "Article" and "Data Science" Term.

If a user wants to find articles from DataShopTalk.com that are about doing data science with Spotfire, the search could look like the following:
is:"Article" is:"Data Science" +"Spotfire"
not:
-
Removes items that match the Term from search results. This operator is chainable with other operators and keyword.

Examples:
not:"Article"
Results will be any item that is not annotated with the "Article" Term.

not:"Article" -"Extension"
Results will be any item that is not annotated with the "Article" nor "Extension" Term.

If a user wants to find items that are not articles nor extensions nor boards, the search could look like the following:
not:"Article" not:"Extension" -"Board"

NOTE: The default for searching is AND, meaning that when a user chains operators together, the term AND will be applied between them. To change this to OR, select the advanced button below the search. The AND and OR will be applied in the background during the search.
