How does advanced search help narrow the search results?

To scratch the surface of how using advanced search in MangoApps, we’ll look at the “Full Network” choice. Other choices give other advanced search filters that you can use to narrow search results. By matching “All” or “Any” of the criteria in the following categories you can have a loose or strict search:

1

  • From User
  • Teams
  • Date Updated
  • Tags

1
“From Users” specifies specific colleagues in your network. “Teams” specifies groups or projects in your network. “Date Updated” lets you choose dates or a date range.

After a main category is chosen, sub-criteria are available for each including:
From User & Teams

  • Equal to
  • Not Equal to

1

“Equal to” means the result set will return search results equal to the User or Team specified. “Not Equal to” will return results that exclude the User or Team specified.
Date Updated

  • On
  • Before
  • After
  • Range

1

“On” means the action occurred within the 24 hour period of the date specified. “Before” and “After” mean that the result set will include matches for any date before or after the date specified, respectively. “Range” allows you to specify a date range to narrow the search results.
