Operations Menu - Items - Search

This page describes the 'Search' function on the Operations menu in the Item browse window. If you are using iOS or Android, you can access the 'Search' function through the Tools menu (with 'wrench' icon).


You can use the 'Search' function to search for Items containing a certain word or phrase. You can open Item records from the search results, so this function is an alternative to searching for Items in the 'Items: Browse' window. To use the 'Search' function, open the 'Items: Browse' window and select 'Search' from the Operations menu (Windows/Mac OS X) or Tools menu (iOS/Android). The following window opens:
