Your Feature Requests: Improving full text search

April 18, 2016
At Solink, we’re continuously working to enhance our full-text search capabilities and make it easier for you to use your data. An integral part of this process is looking at our user feedback and feature requests. A few days ago we received this message from Kevin, one of our users, through our live support chat:

Kevin, your suggestion was great and yes, it is possible!

Improving Text Search

To get an exact phrase match, wrap your search terms in quotation marks: “front cash 2”

Use Boolean Operators to create search term combinations: AND, OR, NOT. (must be capitalized)

A couple examples

1. If you want to find all the transactions from your front cash #2 of $3.06 that don’t include a muffin, use the search bar and type:

“front cash 2” AND “amount: $3.06” NOT “muffins”

2. If you want to find all transactions with a void that has either a dark roast coffee or a large steeped tea in the order, type:

void “dark roast coffee” OR “large steeped tea”

As you can see, there are infinitely many search combinations you can create. Give this new feature a try and let us know how it worked for you. If you have any other feature requests, please send them to us and it might just be part of the next update. Stay tuned!
