4.2 Searching For Information

4.2.1 Using Basic Search

After looking in his Tasks and Calendars tab, Julio realizes that his manager has assigned a new task to him in Teaming. The task is to identify and then interview an individual within the company who has particular expertise in paperless initiatives. Julio decides to use the Search functionality in Teaming to locate a thought leader in the field.

  1. Julio types Paperless in the Search field.

  2. He clicks the Search icon.

    Search generates a Search results page that lists items that match his search criteria.

  3. He can select one of the items in the Search results page, but because he is looking for an expert in the field, he looks in the Top ranked people section.

  4. He clicks the name of the top-ranked person who is not already a member of the team.

    After navigating to Jim’s personal workspace and reading his areas of expertise, Julio discovers that Jim Taylor once worked at an information management company, and specialized in helping companies cut down on needless paper.

4.2.2 Using Advanced Search

Now that Julio knows that Jim Taylor might be a good resource, he decides to fine-tune his search and see what kinds of entries Jim has recently made in Teaming.

  1. Julio clicks Advanced, located above the Search field.

  2. He selects to search all workspaces and sub-places.

  3. In the Text field, Julio types paperless.

  4. In the Authors section, he specifies Jim Taylor in the Author field.

  5. He selects to search for Jim’s activity in the last 90 days.

  6. He wants to search for all entries and comments that Jim has made.

  7. He clicks Search.

    In the search results page, Teaming 2.0 displays all of the entries and comments that Jim has posted. Also, in the Top ranked places section, Teaming displays the places where these entries and comments appear most often.
