Smart search across all your projects
You can use boleean operators to enhance your search. The default search operator includes words with stemming. For example, if you search skiing, you can see search results for ski and skis as well.
Also, the default search parameter uses the OR (-) operator when you include several words. For example, if you search alpine skiing, you will see results for alpine skiing, alpine, ski, skis, and so on.
You have many different search operators that you can use to be more precise when you search:
- John Smith - search for both the words "John" OR "Smith" in all documents. Here you can also search using John - Smith (minus sign)
- John AND Smith - search for both the words "John" AND "Smith" in all documents. Here you can also search using John + Smith (plus sign)
- "John Smith" - search for the exact match "John Smith"
- John NOT Smith – search for "John" in all documents that do not contain "Smith". Here you can also search using John / Smith (slash sign)
- project:[name of project]
- title:[name of document tittle]
- tags:[name of tag]. It is important to capitalize the word exactly as the tag is saved
- $[word]: this search for synonyms for the word. For example, if you search $revenue you will see results for revenue, turnover and sales
You can click on any search result and Research.app will take you to the original web or PDF, scroll to the appropriate section, and it will highlight your result blue to make it easier to find it in the page.
In order to invite anyone, create a project in your Shared Workspace and click the Share button.
Share highlight links when you reference a specific line in a web/PDF. Highlight links will bring you directly to the text, no need to look up page numbers or count paragraphs. Forget about saying “go to page 92, second paragraph, last phrase.”
. Once you send someone a link, they'll be directed to the highlight directly, without the need to have the Research.app Chrome extension installed (but we'd love for you to recommend them Research.app too! 😊)
Status and tags are very useful tools for organization purposes but may not tell the full story. In those cases, you probably want to leave comments on your documents (webs, PDFs, and notes) or highlights to keep track of useful information.
For example, in the previous trip for London, you might want to leave a comment saying that one of the webs that you saved has great information for day trips, outside of the city, and to say that the visit to Stonehenge is your favorite. Also, if you share the project with your friends, they will also see your comments and replies to those webs/PDFs in Research.app. Think of it like a private forum for that page for you, and if you wish, for some of your friends too!
We have notifications and an activity feed to make it easier for you to stay on top of what is happening on your projects. We are still refining both, but our idea is to include only the most important updates in your notification panel, and the bulk of the information with advanced filters in the activity feed.
