When I try to search my database for specific content, I encounter some limitations.
supposed I like to search for something which I know was several years ago. The time-related search parameters however only give me the choice between yesterday, last week, last month (and so on) up to last year. If I look at something what happened eg. in 2001, I have to go to the tools menu, history and I get a list of each and every document. There I now have to mark all documents which are “10 years ago” and I label them e.g. in yellow. Then I go back to the search window, conduct my search limited to “all yellow labeled documents” - it works, but there should be a smarter way to achieve this.
If I like to narrow my search to everything but “xls”-Document - it doesn’t seem to work. DT does not always recognize xls-Documents as tables. Now, if I have to apply the workaround under 1) to this also, I will be short of colours soon… I mean, I can search by name and use “NOT xls” but then, the key-word also have to be found in the document’s title. If I search inside the content of the document, the “NOT xls” doesn’t produce much result.
Is there something like a “best practise guide” for search parameters and efficient searching out there? Maybe I also have to re-think structure…
