Advanced Search

Overview

You can perform advanced searches directly from the Home page in the Web application or the Current Diagram view to find processes shared with you. The search includes not only process names, but also the names of process elements and other properties.

 

Considerations

Separate the words of your search with spaces for multiple-word searches.

Only alphanumeric characters are supported.

The results displayed start with or match the value entered.

Results do not distinguish between upper and lower case letters.

 

Performing an Advanced Search

Either from the Home or current diagram view, enter a value in the search box.

To open the search box from the current diagram view, click Websitel_41. The search box appears in the right panel. A search you perform here only considers the current process.

 

Once you provide the value to search on,, the search results appear. The search retrieves  elements which start with or match the value entered, regardless of the case.

 

AdvancedSearch_02_Workgroup

 

In every result, the word which starts with or matches the value entered is highlighted in orange.

Expand a result to see the name of the process element retrieved in the search and a small part of the value that matched the search terms.

 

AdvancedSearch_03_Workgroup

 

Click the name of the process or the name of element to navigate to its diagram page.

 

Considerations on using speacial search characters:

We define a term as one or more words typed before a character: purch*, purchase req*

you can combine more than one character in the search control i,e: purchase and request - hiring, except for double quotes.

If you type no characters with more than one word, the system assumes you intend “and” between the words.

 

Minimize your search results using the following characters in your search terms:

 

Character

Description

Example

Double quotes: ""

Brings the exact values you type on the search control.

"purchase": brings all diagrams, shapes,  process names, process elements and other properties containing the exact word purchase.

Word and, sign and:&

Use this for two or more search terms: The search results include everything that has both words.

purchase and request: brings all diagrams, shapes,  process names, process elements and other properties containing both terms: purchase request If an element has one term, but not the other, it is not included in the results.

Minus sign : -

Use this for two or more search terms: The search results include all elements that have the first word and not the second word..

purchase - request: brings all diagrams, shapes, process names, process elements and other properties which contain the first term purchase but not the second term request.

If you have two diagrams, “purchase request” and “purchase order”. If you search for purchase - request, the results include all elements which contain purchase and exclude request, so the diagram purchase order appears in the search results and the other one does not.

Word or, vertical bar: |

Use this for two or more search terms: The results includes all elements with either each or both terms

Purchase or request: returns all diagrams, shapes,  process names, process elements and other properties which contains either the term purchase, the term request or both.

Asterisk: *

Returns all elements containing all the values before the asterisk. It auto-completes the words that may match the search.

Purc* : returns all diagrams, shapes,  process names, process elements and other properties which contains the purc values. It also auto-completes the search regarding the typed term. I.E Purc* = Purchase
