IntelligenceBank Search Engine

All IntelligenceBank users have access to IntelligenceBank’s advanced, “Intelligent Search Engine”.  The search function follows all permission settings, so that users can only search for information items they have permission to access.

When an Information Item is uploaded into IntelligenceBank, it is automatically indexed in the search engine.  That is, users can search on the Title, Description, Filters, Contents (Documents, Articles, RSS Feeds, Custom Pages, Reports) and Keywords for each item almost instantly after it has been uploaded or created. 

Every page features a search box to conduct a basic search.  By clicking on “Intelligent Search” next to the search box, Users can conduct more granular searches, such as Boolean queries and search between date ranges.

Search results are ranked by match relevance, you can quickly see where in the title, description and contents the keyword has matched the item, and faceted search functionality is available to further refine results by file type, date, filter, keyword, etc.

 

Boolean Searching. Learn about: How Boolean operators AND, OR and NOT can refine your search by combining or limiting terms. Boolean logic is a system of showing relationships between sets by using the words "AND," "OR," and "NOT."
