# Global search
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](🔗).
