Search result list

The search result list contains:

  • the title of the item
  • the content type of the item
  • whether the item is currently locked for editing
  • the name of the owner
  • the date the item was last modified

Sorting your search results

To sort the list, try the following:

  1. Open the Sort menu
  2. Select the value to sort by, either Relevance, Last modified or Title

The search results will update to reflect the new sorting option selected.

Flagging search results

Key results can be flagged to make them easier to locate in the list of results at a later date.

To flag a result:

  1. Search for a term that will return the result.
  2. Click the flag icon next to the result flag it.
