Laserfiche 8.3 introduces various enhancements to different search types that will help your users search for necessary information more efficiently.
Previously known as Modification Date, the Date search type now includes new preconfigured date range searches. Instead of only being able to manually enter a date range, users can select Since yesterday, This week, Within the last 2 weeks, This month and Within the last 2 months from a drop-down menu and click Search. In addition, Exactly, Before, After, and Between can also be selected if you want to enter dates manually. Opening a saved search that contains one of these preconfigured date ranges will recalculate the date range based on the current date. For example, if you save a search that used the This week date range back in November, when you open it in January, This week will be updated using the current date.
Note: These preconfigured date range searches already existed in Web Access.
Before Laserfiche 8.3, to search by a specific user, you had to manually type the user’s name into the text box, which allowed for spelling errors. Now you can select the Browse button next to the text box and select the Laserfiche user or domain account you want to search for. Last Modified By is also a new option enabling you to search by the last time the specific user modified an entry.
Note: You can still enter in the user’s name manually and use wildcards if you need to.
The Pages search is primarily useful for locating documents that are not full-text searchable. Along with the options to search by page count and if the pages contain text, you can now search for text pages, image pages, thumbnails and location data by their file size in the volumes.
