Some fields that contain the text string are not found when you perform a full text search on your activities and entries.
When you perform a full text search, it finds the string if it is present in a title, uniform resource identifier (URI) of a file, bookmark URI, bookmark title, text field, or a field label. The search can also find the text if it is present in the first 2 KB of the comment or description field.
The following limitations apply when performing a full text search:
Parent topic: Activities overviews, how-tos, and FAQs
Searching across IBM Connections
Subscribing to an Activities feed
- Search will not find text that comes after the first 2 KB of text in a comment or description field. To determine where the 2 KB threshold falls, look for the text that does not display until after you click [more] in the Description field.
- Search does not find tags or dates.
Tip: To find activities or entries that use a certain tag, click the tag from the Tags list or cloud.
- Search does not find names in name fields.
Tip: To find activities that you share with a person, click the person's name from the People list. To find entries created by a person, from within an activity, click the person's name from the Members list.
- Search does not support the use of wildcard characters.
- Search text is not case-sensitive.
Use the search control in the title bar to search across all of your activities and entries for items which contain a word or phrase.
Finding a person's activities or entries
Limit the list of activities to only those that you share with a specific person or, within an activity, limit the list of entries that is displayed to include only those entries created by a specific person.
Filtering activities and entries by tag
To find a group of activities related to the same idea, project, industry, or other categorization, filter your activities by tag. You can filter the entries in a single activity by tag as well.
Follow an activity when you want to be notified about the latest updates to the activity, including updates to activity content. You are not automatically sent these notifications if you are a member of the activity; you must follow the activity to receive them.
