There are two primary methods for beginning a notice search. The first is through the search dropdown, accessed by clicking the search icon in the header.
The second way to access this search is via the search field at the top of the Notices tool itself.
When a search is performed on notices, the search query is checked against the subject of the notice, the contents of the notice, as well as the contents of any text-based documents (such as PDF, DOC, XLSX files) that are attached to the notice.
For best results when searching notices, whole keywords that are three characters in length or longer, separated by spaces, should be used.
When the search query is compared against a notice body (and the body of the notice's attachment), the search first breaks up the entered query into parts that are separated by spaces. These parts are then treated as individual search terms, with the behaviour depending on the filter chosen.
All Search Words
This will ensure that a notice will only appear if the individual search terms (separated by spaces) can all be found within the notice or attachment body. This is irrespective of the word order – as long as each of the terms appear at least once in a notice, that notice will be returned as part of the search results.
Any Search Words
This will ensure that a file will appear if any one of the individual search terms (separated by spaces) appear within the notice body.
