Use Search to Find Employee Documents



Get Training
  • Full text search The easiest way for a HR resource to find specific content is to use Box’s full text search engine. Start by typing what you remember about the content, such as the file name, folder name, text from the document or information in the description. Box’s search engine will filter the results and point you to the information you are looking for. If you are searching for “Roger Liang”, it will find “Roger Liang” not only in the title, but also in the content of a PDF file. 
  • Advanced search Refine search results by files, folders, date, size, name and location in Box. For project meetings, refine results by the meeting date, folder and any specific search terms.
  • Tags – Use tags to organize content for search, indexing and retrieval.  For example, use tags for benefits, departments, employee name, etc.  Each user can also assign their own tags to create their own views into content.

Figure 1: Search uses the document text, folder name and date to retrieve results.
