What can I find with Advanced Search?

Advanced Search helps you look for entries or templates by filtering:

  • Authors- Searches for authors of entries.
  • Content- Searches content from everything within labfolder.
  • Custom dates – Searches for custom dates that were added to an entry.
  • Data Groups – Searches for data groups within entries.
  • Descriptive Data Elements – Searches for descriptive data that has been added as data elements to entries.
  • Uploaded files – Searches the content of any uploaded files.
  • Numerical Data Elements – Searches for specific numerical data.
  • Material Elements – Searches for material elements within entries.
  • Projects – Searches for project name and finds all entries belonging to that project.
  • Tags – Searches the tags of entries.
  • Titles – Searches by title of entries or templates.


You can enter incomplete information such as merely the last name of the author, or a word that appears in the content, project name or entry title. In addition, logic gates (i.e. AND, NOT, OR) are available when using multiple filters.
