Search Documents

Warning: The Search Form reads from the iManage Control Center forms if using iManage, and some of these fields may not display in all systems if the firm disables these from iMCC.

To add metadata fields:

  1. Add the fields in iMCC form first.

  2. Close and reopen any PowerDesktop instance this form needs to appear.

  • If using NetDocuments, the search form also reads from NetDocuments, and provides the fields available in the API.

Clear All

Revert

Select to clear all search fields and start a new search.

Preview

Opens a preview window with the currently selected criteria for the search in effect.

 

Once all settings have been procured for the search, clicking OK will initiate the search. Clicking Cancel closes the search window and returns to the Work Explorer.

 

Saved Searches

During an active session, after searching for either Workspaces or Documents, those searches get added to the Recent Searches in the Work Explorer’s tree to the left.

From the Saved Searches, it is possible to right-click on a search to directly perform an Export job, refine the search, rename the search, or delete the search.

If the PowerDesktop session ends, the current saved searches will be eliminated.

 

Right Click Menu

If a user right-clicks on a search result, or on a Workspace the following options are available:

  1. The Properties window shows details of the properties as in the File Explorer

  2. Rename will allow renaming the folder/workspace.

  3. Delete will allow for the deletion of the folder/workspace.

  4. Add Folder will add a new folder in that workspace or folder tree. This displays the Add Folder dialog.

  5. Refresh will refresh the view of the tree and any subitems underneath the object refreshed.

  6. Search documents open the search documents wizard as defined above.

  7. The export will allow exporting the workspace or documents.

  8. A New → Folder command is now available in the toolbar of the Work file/folder selector, which is used in the Folder Import Wizard and Target Selection dialog in Project Import.

    1. In the Work Browser, a New submenu with "Document Folder..." is available from the right-click menu for workspaces, regular folders, tabs, and search folders.

    2. Default profile values are inherited from the parent workspace or folder by default. Tabs and Search folders do not have profiles, so a folder created under a tab will inherit values from the workspace, while a folder under a search folder inherits nothing, which is the same behavior as in classic Work clients.

    3. Security is automatically set to inherit, but you can uncheck that and give the folder custom security. The current user is not automatically shown in the ACL, but as the owner, they will have full access.
