Document Content Search beta
This release sees the addition of new beta functionality, which extends the Aconex Documents search capability to documents’ content as well as document metadata.
Currently, organizations are able to join the beta by invitation only, though we expect to make it more available in the coming months.
The beta is also restricted to certain users on certain projects, so while a user may see it on one project, they won’t see it on all their projects yet.
The beta is further restricted to searching the content of Word, Excel, and rich PDF documents (that is, files created in PDF format, not items scanned and saved as PDFs). Every new file of these types that’s uploaded from this point forward will also be indexed in the search.
Users on included projects can search documents’ content by clicking the Search File Content checkbox on the Documents Search page. With the checkbox checked, a keyword search using the Super search field will cover both the metadata and the actual file content of every document in the Document Register.
You can refine the search results using the document metadata fields, to find, for example, only Electrical documents containing a certain word or phrase.
