Search

Updated 3 months ago by Ionuț Colceriu

Once you and your team build up a number of templates, finding the right one can be difficult. Searching allows you to find the right template easily.

When searching for templates, we look for the search query inside the Template Title, Template Shortcut, and the Template Body. You can also filter templates using Tags.

We're using "fuzzy searching" to filter your templates. Fuzzy searching means we're approximately matching your search text with the template titles, shortcuts, or contents. This makes it easier to find your templates.

If you need an exact match, or a specific template, you can use the advanced search.

Advanced searching allows you to fine-tune results.

Search prefixes

You can use prefixes to your search query to get exact or inverse matches on your templates.

White space acts as an AND operator, while a single pipe (|) character acts as an OR operator. To escape white space, use double quote (eg. ="template title") for an exact match.

Search operators

You can use special search operators to filter your search results. You can also combine operators to filter your templates even more.

You can use search operators with the regular text search, in the search fields from the Dashboard or the Autocomplete Dialog.
