M-Files Under the Hood: Advanced Search

Posted on August 12, 2009 under Uncategorized by

We continue our look inside M-Files document management interface inside Window Explorer.  In part one and two of our Explorer exploration, we saw how M-Files controls allow you to view your files dynamically and also retrieve files quickly by typing in metadata key words into the search box.

M-Files electronic filing also allows users to set up much more sophisticated queries to locate a certain set of documents, trace workflow history, or search for specific content.

In the M-Files Windows Explorer interface, simply expand the top search box by clicking Advanced Search on the right-hand side.

In the Advanced Search box, users can add additional conditions to refine the search.  Because M-Files stores and retrieves any sort of Windows-produced document through database attributes as well as file contents, users can structure very specific search queries similar to those possible with popular databases.  These conditional rules set by the drop down menus could specify a date range, document format, authorship, a particular project or customer, and so forth.
