Without a reliable and efficient search system, no knowledge management system is worthwhile. The stored data can be retrieved in different ways:
- Full-text search in the document itself
- Structured metadata search
- Tag search
- User generated content search (ratings, comments)
Intuitive search function
To make the search function intuitive and efficient, we developed a search mask that allows for easy and quick interactions without compromising on features. An auto-complete function helps the user input information.
Search results are sorted by relevance. The locations of search terms within the documents, as well as important metadata, are shown directly in the search results, allowing the user to evaluate the relevance of each result.
