Advanced Document Search

An advanced document search lets you search for documents across all archives in greater detail. You can search for documents that are:

  • Greater than or less than a specific size
  • Files that match or do not match words in a word list
  • Files that include or exclude certain words in the body
  • Files that include words close to other words

NetGovern Search supports over 600 document types.

Keep in mind that the AND and OR Boolean operators are the mainstay of the advanced search. Think about how to narrow or broaden a search by including or excluding certain information pertinent to the case. Remember that the AND operator narrows a search and the OR operator broadens a search. In NetGovern Search, the AND operator is represented by "All of" and the OR operator is represented by "Any of"—see Search Operators.

TIP
When searching for documents, the ideal scenario is to take the search parameters from a document search you have previously conducted using the Search dialog box, and use them in an advanced document search.
However, it is only possible to use parameters from previous searches if you have not cleared them from the Search dialog box after running the search.
Then when you open the Advanced Search dialog box, the Document fields will already be populated with the parameters you used in a previous search.

If you do not want to use the previous search parameters, simply remove the rules you do not want or clear the entire Advanced Search dialog box before starting a new search.

NOTE
When searching for documents, you can search by path, allowing you to restrict results to specific folders.
NOTE
When Egnyte crawler location is selected, ACL information is supported.
