Where to Find It
Special search queries can be used in any “Search Deeper” window in Filevine, as well as in the "Search within a Project" search box. Search Deeper can be opened by clicking the “Search Deeper” button in the dropdown of the “Search for a project” bar in the top right corner or by clicking the Search option from the main menu in the hamburger icon in the top left corner. These Search Deeper windows will search across all the projects accessible to you.
The “Search Deeper” window can also be opened for an individual project by clicking the “Search this Project” button underneath project sections in the bottom left corner or by clicking the “Search Deeper” button in the Docs Section of a project. These Search Deeper windows will search within a single project.
If the Search Deeper search bar text is “Search,” the search will return results across the Org for all projects that you have access to. If the search text is “Search within this project,” the search will return results within the project.
Search Deeper also has an “Options” button, which can help you filter your search by notes, email, faxes, etc. Click on a category to add or exclude those items from your search. Double click on a category to quickly exclude every other category from your search.
Here you can also choose to sort the results by either relevance or last activity, and choose whether to include archived projects and whether to open any result you click on in a new tab.
The search results will be sorted either by relevance or by most recent activity, depending on your selection in Search Options. Each result appears as a card with the searched terms highlighted. Each card will be tagged with item type (document, text, etc.) in the top right, with the text of the item (title of the document, text of the text. etc.) at the top. The cards will also include a breadcrumb trail along the bottom, with the Org, project, section, and item.
