How to filter search results

Interactive search filters on the left side of the page let you refine the search results based on a variety of criteria: location, author, date, and others.

To filter results you just have to click on one (or more) of the search filters. There are different options, you can filter your search by:

  • Location, where do you want to look for that thread/question? You can choose here any of the boards of the community.
  • Author , who created the thread/content? 
  • Date, want only the most recent results? Use one for the date filters to see results for a day or a week ago.
  • Solved or kudoed, want to limit your search results to to the most kudoed posts? Just click the check box for Kudoed.  

Search filters work together, you can see which filters are active at the top of the results list. To turn a filter off, click the X (Remove) button to the right of the filter.

How does auto-suggest work? 

Auto-suggest does make your search faster by displaying the results as you type your search terms. When you see the message can go to the post from the auto-suggest results.

 

Looking for other members... 

You can search for Community members by clicking the Users tab on any search results page.

You can search for community members by name and then sort them by rank, posts, email, last visit or registration date. The results show you profile squares for the users who match your criteria. You should always include in the name you are searching at least three characters long.
