Advanced search

Advanced Search allows you to search for text within the content of the MYOB Intranet items in the same way as the Searching. In addition, it allows various filters to be applied, such a specific Categories or Document Types. For example, this allows you to search for the text only within documents that have been marked as Letters or only within the Checklists category.

Search for more than one word

If you enter more than one word, the search uses all the entered words applying the AND condition. For example, if “year end” is the search text, content is searched that contains both the word “year” AND the word “end”. The search results will contain items that contain “Year End”, “End of Year”, “At the end of every month for the first year only” etc.

You can enter the search text to find either or any of the words you enter by using the OR condition. For example, if you enter “bank OR statement”, this will search for content that contains either the word “bank” OR the word “statement”.

The search will also find variants of words, for example, if you search for “statement” it will also find “statements”.

Clicking Advanced Search displays a separate window with the various filters that are available. Select one or more of the options. A number of filters can be selected, as required.
