Find Documents Quickly

Box gives you multiple ways to find the information you need:

  • Full text search. The easiest way 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 filename, folder name, text from the document or information in the description. Box’s search engine will refine and filter the results and point you to the information you are looking for.
  • Tags. Tags allow you to tag content for search, indexing and retrieval. Your organization can tag all meetings with an appropriate label, such as “Board Meetings” or “Sales Meetings.” Each user can also implement their own tags to create their own views into content.
  • Advanced search. Refine search results by files, folders, tye, date, size, name and location in Box. 

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