Searching

KaiNexus keeps you in the loop about what is happening with Improvements, Projects, and Tasks with which you are involved.


Typically, you will receive an email or a nightly digest message about these items. If you want to learn more about them, take some action, or make a comment, you’ll need to log into KaiNexus, find the Improvement, and get to work.

 

So how do I find a specific Improvement, Project, or Task?

If KaiNexus has sent you an email informing you about something regarding an Improvement, Project, or Task there will be a link in that email which will take you directly to that item in KaiNexus.

 

If you know the item’s title, keywords, or ID number, after logging into KaiNexus you can search for it using the search box at the top of the screen.

There are several ways for you to quick search. To get started:

  • Enter your search phrase in the “Quick Search” field at the top center of the page.

  • In the resulting window, choose which search method you want to use. The search results will update accordingly.

You have three available search methods:

  • Relevance (the default quick search method) - Items containing text exactly matching or close to the phrase you searched for will be returned. This is a pretty forgiving search method that we recommend using if you’re not absolutely certain what you’re looking for.

    • For example, if you’re searching for a Project called “Jasmine’s Parts Presentation,” you can search for “Parts,” “Pres,” “Jazine’s Pars Preseation,” “Pars Presem,” etc.

  • Exact - Items starting with the exact phrase you searched for will be returned. This is the strictest search method; be sure of what you’re looking for.

    • For example, if you’re searching for a Project called “Jasmine’s Parts Presentation,” you can search for “Jasmine’s parts,” “Parts Pres,” or “Parts P,” etc.

      You cannot search for phrases missing the start of the first word like “art Pres” or “ine’s Parts Presentation.”

  • Advanced - An advanced query including wildcard and boolean logic. For example, if you’re searching for:

    • A word where you only know the first few letters, type “[word]*”.

      E.g. if you’re looking for a Project called “Jasmine’s Parts Presentation,” you could search for “Presen*.”

    • Items that contain several keywords, type “[word] + [word].”

      E.g. if you’re looking for a Project called “Jasmine’s Parts Presentation,” you could search for “Presentation + Jasmine.”

    • Documents that contain either of several keywords, type “[word] || [word].”

      E.g. if you want to return a list of all Projects including the words “Presentation” or “Jasmine,” you could search for “Presentation || Jasmine.”

    • Documents that contain one keyword but not the other, type “[word] -![word].” Note that there is no space separating the special character from the second keyword.

      E.g. If you want to return a list of all Projects including the words “Presentation” but not “Jasmine,” you could search for “Presentation -!Jasmine.”

    • An exact phrase, type “ “phrase.” “

      E.g. if you want to return a list of all Projects containing exactly the phrase “Parts Presentation,” you could search for “ “Parts Presentation.” “

    • Put two boolean operators together, type “([word] [boolean] [word]) [boolean] [word].”

      E.g. if you want to return a list of all Projects containing “Jasmine” and “Presentation” or “Clark” and “Presentation,” you could search for “(Jasmine || Clark) + presentation.”
