Basic Live Search - using GUI

Based on customers feedback, while doing live search we now added several filters in the lookup window.

This below article explains you different ways to search the data in Exelare Live Search Bar with operators using GUI. 

All of these: Searches for data that just contains the words you selected without being the exact phrase. You can select (i.e., check) as many keywords as you want.
Any of these: Useful when searching multiple keywords. For example, you can find records that contain the word Product, Marketing or Java Developer.

Starts With: Searches for data that starts with the word you selected.
Exact: Shows only records with exact phrases that you selected (Ex: =SQL Server)
Contains: Searches for data that has the word anywhere in the field. It behaves kind of like a wild card. (Ex: *Product)

1)    Let’s say you want to search for “Product” and “Marketing” in “Other Skills” field. You can use the operators “Starts With” – “All of these”. 

To search for "Marketing and Product",

  1. In Exelare, on the live search bar click the drop-down next to the field (Ex: Other Skills)
  2. At the bottom of the popup window, choose “Starts With” and “All of these” under Filters.
  3. Check the lookup values (Ex: Marketing and Product)
  4. Click on OK.

2) If you want to search for either of the keywords in a particular field. Ex: “Product” or “Marketing” or both. You can use the operators “Starts With” – “Any of these”.

To search for "Marketing or Product",

  1. In Exelare, click the drop-down next to the field (Ex: Other Skills)
  2. At the bottom of the popup window, choose “Starts With” and “Any of these” under Filters.
  3. Check the lookup values (Ex: Marketing and Product)

3) Exact operator
The EXACT operator can be used to retrieve records that match your search term precisely.

For example: To search for EXACT keyword “Technology”. Choose the operator “Exact” in the Filters. This search will return results which have "Technology" in the field, but will exclude data that feature this phrase as part of a longer entry, such as "Technology Lead" or "Technology Consultant" etc.

To search for EXACT word in Exelare:

  1. In Exelare, click the drop-down next to the field (Ex: JobTitle)
  2. At the bottom of the popup window, choose “Exact” under Filters.
  3. Check the lookup values (Ex: Director)
  4. Click on OK. 


Results: This does not show the records where job title like Director – Consulting Services, Director Global Recruiting etc.


4) Truncation/Wildcard:
Use the truncation symbols to create searches where you want to retrieve all variants of a word stem. The most commonly used truncation symbol is the asterisk (*). For example, a search for

Examples
Educat*
Will retrieve: educate, educating, education, educational, educator, educators, etc.

Technology* 
Will retrieve entries for all records containing the words: Technology, Technology Lead, Technology Consultant, Technology Architect, Technology Analyst, etc.

Let’s say you want to search for candidates who has the keyword either “.net” or “C#” or “C++” anywhere in the field. You can choose the operator “Contains” that behaves like a wildcard.

To search using Contains in Exelare:

  1. In Exelare, click the drop-down next to the field (Ex: Primary Skills)
  2. At the bottom of the popup window, choose “Contains” under Filters.
  3. Check the lookup values (Ex: .Net, C# and C++)
  4. Click on OK.
