Brief guide to searching

There are two main ways to search the database, simple and advanced searching.

Simple search

The simple search is accessed via the “Google-style” search box in the top right hand corner of the CalmView page.

By default, the simple search will search across the Title and Description fields. Where more than one term is entered, the default is an AND search.

See the “What are acceptable searches?” page for samples of simple searches.

Advanced search

The advanced search enables you to perform “Any text Field” searches, and also to search specifically on certain fields

Refine advanced search criteria

By default, a search will look for the word or words you have entered. However you can choose to change the default search criteria by clicking the “Refine Search Criteria” option. There are three ways to refine the search option:

With all the words

With at least one of the words

Without the words

Searching on picklist fields

If the field on which you are searching is a “picklist” field (a field in which the content is restricted to a limited list) it will appear with a drop down list from which you can select your search term.
