The global search bar allows you to search from any page across all areas of Simon, and immediately access the results. It is a very effective way of moving directly from one page to another without needing to go through a series of pages to find what you're looking for.
Accessing global search
When you enter a search term and hit enter, global search will perform a search across the following areas:
Using global search
The global search allows you to search by name, tags or a combination of both.
When using multiple search criteria, it will be evaluated in the following way:
- Tags + name search: Items tagged with the tag AND with a name matching the search term.
- Multiple tags: Items tagged with all supplied tags (AND).
- Multiple name search terms: items with a name that matches all search terms in any order (AND).
- Name search with quotes: names matching the exact supplied search term within quotes.
Global vs. local search
Index pages (e.g. the Segments page) also contain a search bar, which will search within that section of Simon (e.g. Segments). In other aspects, the two searches behaves the same. Read more about local search here.
