Quick Search

There are 3 ways you can look for items with the quick search bar. To get started, enter your search phrase in the “Search” field at the top center of the KaiNexus web application.

 In the resulting window, choose which search method you want to use:

  • Relevance (the default quick search method) - Items containing text exactly matching or close to the phrase you entered 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. and can expect that the correct Project will be included in the results.

  • 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.” If you misspell a work in your search term, results containing the correct spelling will not be returned.

  • 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: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.”

Filter within the Search window

You can now use the Advanced Filter within a quick search. You can use this to give you more precise search results and help you find exactly what you are looking for in the system.

By default, there are already three of our most commonly used filters set and ready for you to populate with criteria. 

NOTE: The Advanced Filter criteria will work in conjunction with the quick filter checkboxes you have set within the Search window.
