Using Documents search codes

Master document searching using advanced search techniques.

Use the Aconex search codes below in the search field to get exactly the search results you want.

Make sure you follow each code with a colon, as shown below.

To search using a code that has a Yes or No value (e.g. confidential), search 1 for yes, and 0 for no.
