Query

Example

Notes

Single term

vaccination

Searches for documents that contain "vaccination".

Multiple term

employee vaccination

Searches for documents that contain either "employee" OR "vaccination". Those containing both appear higher in the results than those with just one.

Phrase

"employee vaccination"

Searches for documents that contain the exact phrase "employee vaccination".

Wildcard search (*)

vacc*

Multi-character wildcard search returning documents with "vaccination" or "vaccine" or "vaccinal" etc. Unlike ? (below) the * wildcard can only be used at the end.

Wildcard character search (?)

defin?tely

Single-character wildcard search. It will match "definitely" or "definately" but not "defineatly".

OR operator

employee OR vaccination

Searches for documents that contain either "employee" OR "vaccination". Same as multiple term.

AND operator

employee AND vaccination

Searches for documents that contain both "employee" AND "vaccination".

Grouping

(important OR office) AND document

Use parentheses for expression grouping. The example would return any documents containing "important document" and any with "office document".

Fuzzy Search (~)

vaccination~

Search based on similar spelling, which would also find documents with the word misspelt as "vacination".
