Searching and Finding Documents

We provide a comprehensive full-text search that is similar to Google. You can search for simple terms or start a nested search with little information. If your search concerns text documents that are not encrypted, we also search through the content of the documents and looks for the search terms you have entered.


Searching for simple terms

  1. Enter the search term you want to use in the search field above the folder tree.
  2. Click on the magnifying glass symbol or press ENTER.
  3. The results appear in the results list. 


Searching for documents that contain a certain text phrase

Example: You are searching for a letter to “John Doe”. You want to exclude documents addressed to “John Deer” and “Jane Doe”. Or you are searching for a certain sentence, such as “easy document exchange in the cloud”.

  1. Enter “John Doe” in the search field above the folder tree. The words (as many as you want) are encapsulated with quotation marks (“”).
  2. Click on the magnifying glass symbol or press ENTER.
  3. The results appear in the results list. 


Searching for documents that contain two search terms

Example: You are searching for all documents that contain both “document service” and “mail”.

  1. Enter “document service AND mail” in the search field above the folder tree. “AND” links the search terms.
  2. Click on the magnifying glass symbol or press ENTER.
  3. The results appear in the results list. 


Searching for documents that contain various search terms

Example: You are searching for all documents that contain either “document service” or “mail”. This search functions for any number of terms.

  1. Enter “document service OR mail” in the search field above the folder tree. “OR” separates the terms.
  2. Click on the magnifying glass symbol or press ENTER.
  3. The results appear in the results list. 


Searching for documents that contain unknown search terms

Example: You search for all documents that contain a word that is spelled differently or for an amount of money.

  1. Enter "Document*" in the Search field above the folder tree. The term is extended with an asterisk (*). 
  2. Click on the magnifying glass symbol or press ENTER.
  3. The results appear in the results list.

Tip: For example, if you want to search for an invoice amount, enter "14*95" in the search field.
