Select your product: There’s a lot of information in the knowledgebase and the best way to ensure you get the best and most relevant results is to start by choosing your product, then searching.
3-4 keywords: searches that have fewer than 4 words requires all words to appear in the solution. Searches over 4 words become less precise and can return solutions that are not as relevant.
Descriptive and specific: Just searching for “product help” is likely to give you far too many results. When searching for an error message or code, paste it into the search box for the easiest way to find answers.
Punctuation: The search doesn’t check your punctuation, so don’t worry about adding that to your search words.
Capitalization: UPPER or lower case; it doesn’t matter which you use, the results will be the same.
Use Search operators to refine your search
Plus +: Forces a word to be present. Enter + before your search term to tell the search engine that the term must be included in the content returned in the results. Example: +Outlook
Minus – Removes articles containing this word from results. Enter -before your search term to tell the search engine that the term must not be included in the content returned in the results Example: -PowerPoint
Quotes “” Tells the search engine to search a particular phrase instead of individual words. Use quotes on phrases to tell the search engine to return content with that phrase in it. Example: “delete images”
Asterisk * - Add * to the end of a partial word and search will look for all partial matches. Example: Searching for MagikLogik and can’t remember how it is spelled, use “magi*”
Relevancy & Filtering

Did you mean?
When searching, the Did You Mean? functionality may present itself if there is an alternate term which may provide a better result. Very useful in picking up spelling errors and getting users to their content without a 2nd search!
When searching, users are presented with auto-suggested solutions that match their search term below the search bar. Did You Mean? functionality will also display after searching if there is an alternate term which may provide a better result.
