Narrow down Search Results

This article also shows you how you can use search operators to narrow down the results you get.

You can search without any operator.

For example fringe benefit tax. Doing so will return procedures that contain the words "fringe", "benefits" or "tax".

You can use "" for exact match search.

For example "fringe benefit tax". Doing so will only return procedures which have the exact phrase contained within the double quotes.

You can use + to mark some words as required.

So only procedures which contains the marked words are shown, even if other words are used, for example +fringe benefit will return procedures which contains the word "fringe" and may contain the word "benefit"

You can use name: to narrow the search results and search only the titles of procedures.

For example name:fringe will search for procedures which contain the word "fringe" in their title.

name:"fringe benefit tax"will search for procedures which contain the exact phrase "fringe benefit tax" in their title.

name:+fringe benefit will return a list of procedures with the word "fringe" in their title and may contain the word "benefit" anywhere.

You can use tag: to narrow the search results and search only the tags.

For example tag:fringe will search for procedures which contain the word "fringe" in their tag.

tag:"fringe benefit tax"will search for procedures which contain the exact phrase "fringe benefit tax" in their tag.

tag:+fringe benefit will return a list of procedures with the word "fringe" in their tag and may contain the word "benefit" anywhere.

You can description: to narrow the search results and search only the descriptions of procedures.

Note: The description is just the top level description area of the procedure.

For example description:fringe will search for procedures which contain the word "fringe" in their description.
