Use Search Filters in your Query

If you are looking for information that matches specific conditions, using search filters is the fastest way to zoom in on the information you need. The more filters you use, the more refined your search results will be.

Example: You know that your colleague, Ed typically works on Intellectual Property Law matters and you would like to refer to his submissions for a similar file you are working on.

  1. Narrow down your results from the start by using the 4 Search Filters in the drop-down menu which will appear when the search bar is clicked.

  2. For example, when you type the filter “owner:” in the search bar, a drop-down list of owners is displayed for you to make a selection. In this case, clicking on ‘Ed Koh’ will trigger a search for all resources which are owned by him.

  3. Add another filter “cat:” to search by categories. You can either select a category from selected ones shown in the drop down menu or type in the category e.g. submissions and select it to include it in your search query. This narrows the search results to just 37 documents.

  4. Finally, you can select the Legal Topic category ‘Intelllectual Property’ from the left navigation panel. Checking the box runs the search query to bring you to just 1 document that fits the bill.

  5. Click on ‘Request Access’ to notify Ed that you would like to access the document. Find out more about requesting for access to your firm’s resources in this FAQ.
