Overview

Advanced Searching features include:
  • Customised Search Forms: Customise file search preferences to show input fields specific to company data with customised search forms referred to as “Cards.” Create and assign multiple search cards for certain users and groups to shape search capabilities to truly reflect your company’s needs
  • Search Favourites: Save and share search criteria as “favourites”, providing you with instant access to frequent searches
  • Content Searching: Use Windows® indexing to create a catalogue of file contents to support more powerful searching capabilities. This allows you to search on a specific character string, such as a specification number in a note on a drawing or within a PDF file. This approach makes it easier to make changes if you need to update all affected documents
  • Integrated Windows Explorer Search: The system’s advanced searching tools work seamlessly with Windows Explorer search feature as the user has the choice to search within SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional or Windows Explorer as well as being able to search from within the “File Open” dialogue of all Windows-based applications.
