What can I search on?

It's easy to find what you're looking for in Aconex.

Aconex lets you search within a project for:

  • documents

  • mail

  • tenders

  • workflows.

You can also search:

  • documents and mail across all your projects. 
  • the project and global directories when you send a mail.

What’s searched?

When you search your Document Register, you’re searching the documents’ metadata and, if you check the Include file content box, the content of the documents.

The metadata is the information that you and your colleagues use to tag and identify the document within Aconex.

So as you can see, it’s very important to include as much accurate metadata as you can when you’re adding documents to Aconex.

When you search for Mail in Aconex, you’re searching Mail metadata and the mail body content.

Again, the content of documents attached to Mail isn’t searched, although you can narrow your search to mail with or without attachments.
