Performing simple search against title or keyword

The Simple Search interface is a search field where if you enter a search text, iManage Work returns all the documents conforming to the entered search text format. The default search is set to Title search. Some environments may refer to this as Document Name or Document Description. iManage Work performs a search through the titles and if the term or its variations are found anywhere in the title of the document, the document is listed in the results. However, if you enter a number, then a number search is performed. The Number search performs the search on the Document Number. As a quick search option, in iManage Work 10 clients, you can enter the pound (#) sign in the search bar followed by the document number. For example, entering #10 would return document number 10.

If you want the search to be performed throughout the document, then you must enter the search term as a Keyword. Keyword search is any full-text field on the document, including the Document Name.

For example, when you search for the term apple, a default search is performed on documents that exist in iManage Work and the search results display a list of documents that contain the search term or its variations. iManage Work performs a full-text search through the document and if the term or its variations are found anywhere in the document, the document is listed in the results. Here, the search is being performed as a keyword search.

  • Title or keyword for documents/workspaces.
