Search operators are syntax elements, such as quotation marks or specific words, that put conditions on the initial search.
Values between quotes "such as this" will treat the text string as a single term.
A tag operator can be used to return only tagged items in results. Example: Tags:webinar will return only items with the tag of "webinar." Untagged items will not be returned. Note: ILTA recordings, presentations and publications are tagged. Some blogs are tagged. Discussions are typically not tagged.
A term including an asterisk will allow any character or characters to replace the value. Example: innovat* finds innovation, innovate and innovated.
- The common term "and" requires logic between strings. Example: meat and potatoes returns only items where both meat and potatoes are included.
- The common term "or" uses any-of-these logic between strings. Example: grass or turf returns any items where either grass or turf is included.
A term within parentheses will allow "and" and "or" operators to limit the result set. Example: lunch and (meat or room or bunch) will bring back anything with lunch and at least one of meat, room, or bunch. Note that multiple instances of logical operators can be used.
A hyphen connected to a term will omit any content using that term from results. Example: -football will omit any items with the word "football." The negating character can be used with groupings.
Standard English terms can be used to look for matches within specific stored elements.
- Title example: Title:Favorite will return only items where the word "favorite" is used in the title of the item.
- Description example: Description:Evidence will return only items where the word "evidence" is used in the description of the item.
Brackets with capital TO between properly formatted date values can limit to a range such as a date range. Example: [01/01/2016 TO 12/31/2016].
Multiple expressions for dates are supported. (When omitted, the time component is equal to 00:00:00)
