Searching in Feng Office

Feng Office provides a full text search that allows you to search information regardless of the object type.

One of the new improvements for Feng Office 2 series is being able to look for document contents text (bet it .pdf, .doc, .docx, .osd, .osdf.. aside from the traditionals .html and .txt).

Searching always takes place in the currently selected Client, Project, Workspace,etc. This can help narrow your search. On the other hand: If you don't find what you expect, you may look for something Everywhere by standing on View all on your left.

It can be found on the top right corner of your screen: simply input what you are looking for, and press on Search:

For those who are looking for more specific information, you may use the Advanced Search option. This can be achieved through:

  1. Click on the arrow next to Search on the top right corner
  2. Select Advanced Search
  3. Select which kind of object will you be looking for
  4. Add conditions
  5. Run your search

Searching tasks

In the following example we will be looking for tasks that have been:

  • Assigned to Adam
  • Created after 06/05/2013
  • Percent completed is greater than 50

Note: You may select different objects and conditions, depending on the object type.

Searching companies

Due to some changes we have done in Feng Office 2, you may look for companies through two different ways:

1- Through the Advanced Search

  • Is Company Equal to False
  • Name Like Feng Office (or your company name)

Note: You may select different objects and conditions, depending on the object type.

2- You may do it from the dimension handler (the trees on the left):

  • Show the People dimension if it is hidden (you may hide it later on)
  • Start typing the name of the company you are looking for.. in this case Feng Office

Deprecated (valid for Feng Office 1.X series)

  • You can enter several words in the search field. Feng Office will then find any information that contains all of these words. If you would like to search only for a specific phrase, then put it into quotes.
  • Asterisks (*) are wildcards. Document* will match Document and Documents but Document will only match Document.
  • You can search within online editable documents and presentations as well. But you can't search within Word documents, PDFs and similar uploaded documents.
  • In your user preferences you can choose between Full search and Quick search (default).
  • The Quick search engine uses MySQL indexes for searching which makes it quick, but has some limitations: It can't find words shorter than 4 characters (unless MySQL is configured to index them). Read more: MySQL manual
  • The Full search engine can find more results but will be real slow with too much data. It has no length limit. Before 1.6.2 it only matched the whole search phrase but now it matches individual words.
  • Some examples: docu will match MyDocument in Full search but not in Quick search. a* will match all words starting with A in Quick search but it will match all words containig A in Full search.
