Narrowing search fields on SharePoint
Posted by , Last modified by on 27 Jan 2017 11:34hrs

This article is to explain how to narrow your search down to provide a more useful list of search results on the new Defence Gateway landing page.

The search box on the new page can be use like any other however as it uses SharePoint it enables you to narrow it down. e.g looking for any pages written by Joe Bloggs I could search ' author:"Joe Bloggs" '. This word brings up a list of articles written by Joe Bloggs in the search results. Other examples can been seen in the table below.

You can search for a specific title by using the title property, for instance title:"An example SharePoint page".

You must ensure to use quotation marks around your search value and leave no space after the colon.

This article should cover the basics you need to know to narrow down your search. For more information on this which goes much further in depth, please visit this site:
