- When conducting a search, the search parameters include: The original filename of the asset, The title of the asset, Any categories that relate to the search inquiry, and any keywords that relate to the search inquiry.
- Search only incorporates single search strings, meaning, the system only looks for words and letters in the exact order it is presented.
- All search terms are treated as partial-word searches. A search for "Day," for example, will return results that include words like "Holiday," "Birthday," and "Days."
- Logical terms like, "And," "Or," and "Not" are not supported, nor are punctuation marks, like asterisk, ampersand and quotation marks. Searches that include these words and characters will not return results that include those items.
- Search terms are not case-sensitive.
