Search Tips for iManage Work 10

By Jennifer Parker | June 24, 2020 |

There are several different ways to search in iManage. If you know detailed information about the document or case you need, you can enter that information directly into the search function’s fields. If you are looking for an exemplar or a starting point for a new document, start your search broad and then narrow as needed. The following are search tips you can use to more effectively utilize the Work 10 web client. Using the Work 10 Web Client Quick Search Quick Search is best used in the following scenarios: You know the name or internal control number of the document, email, author, matter or client You want to conduct full-text searching You are searching within a container, such as a specific workspace or folder inside a workspace You want to be able to get broad results and filter them down using metadata attributes (author, case, application type, date, etc.) Some tips with Quick Search: The function defaults to only searching “title,” but you can change your personal default to Keyword with the Set as Default This is a sticky setting.
