Search for mail

But both our Android and iOS apps let you search from the Mail page. Here's how.

  3. Type your search criteria into the search field.

  4. To narrow your search results, tap Refine. This lets you select from all the filters that are available in Aconex.

  5. Tap Search to run your search.

To search beyond your own mail, switch My mail only to OFF.
