Work2Go 2011-02: Searches
15 March 2011
One of the most useful and powerful tools available in Work2Go is without no doubt the search tool. I talked to a customer today who said he had lost an email. The customer in question's inbox contains of a countless number of folders, that he's using for sorting his emails. The lost email is now hidden in one of the folders, but which one?! To search through hundreds of folders for a 'lost' email is time consuming and frustrating. But we didn't have to do that! The only thing we did was filling in the name of the person who emailed him in the search box and voilà, we had the email he thought he had lost. As quick and easy as that!
The advanced search options is above all applicable for emails. You can find a specific email by searching for the email address, specific words in the subject line or in the actual message, date or time span, URLs, phone numbers, file size, attachments, tags and status. But it's of course not only emails you can find, but everything else that you have saved in your account. Such as your files, Contacts, appointments, Tasks, Documents and even files that are kept in folders that you haven't created yourself, but is shared with you.
Search as you're used to
Just as when you search with Google, you can use an asterisk * as a wild card in Work2Go. For example, if you are searching for do*, you get search results with the words dog, door, etc. The search is always an exact text search, but not case sensitive. So it doesn't matter whether you write in upper or lower case.
Save your searchesIf you create a search that you think you will use again, you can save it. Next time you want to make the same search again, simply click on the saved search and you will get the search results right away, without having to set the search criteria again.
To share information and files with ones colleagues is always appreciated. Therefore I thought I should tell you more about sharing next time.
I hope it's a little bit warmer outside then!
