What is Advanced Search Functionality?

Advanced Search broadens the search features for users with content permissions. The default search bar searches only for words or phrases located in the title of the content.

The advance search searches for keywords and phrases in text elements, section headers, and practice scenarios.

How to use Advanced Search

The Advanced Search feature is on the Content page, to the right of the search bar > select β€œAdvanced Search.”

After selecting "Advance Search," the user is brought to a page with a search bar and a variety of filters.

  • All Content

  • Tags

  • Date Updated

  • Creator

  • Status (draft or published)

What is Searchable with Advanced Search?

Users with content permissions can search all content in advance search.

After typing in a keyword or phrase, the user can search under "Title or Description" or "Content" type (paths, certifications, lessons, SCORM, practice scenarios).

Advance Seach Pagination

The Advanced Search page is paginated. By default, users must select "Show ## more matches" to view more results.

When fewer than 20 results remain, it will indicate how many are left to view.

Additional Notes

  1. Draft Results only show draft content if there is an in-progress draft. This means the lesson is in a "Draft" or "Published (Unpublished Draft)" state.

  2. Preview links will always display the most recently published version of a lesson when no search query is being used.

    When draft lessons are added the preview link displays the in-progress draft when the user interacts with draft content.

  3. Lessonly uses Algolia to power our search, which means Lessonly is pushing data to Algolia every few minutes. This can cause a delay of several minutes between when content is published, and when it will show up in the advanced search results.
