Wild Card Search

The 'wild card search' feature in Rev gives users the option to search for text values using an asterisk (*) to specify any number of characters followed by the characters that you can recollect. This feature comes especially handy when you want to search for variable values around a root word or number (which has been setup as a text field). The following example demonstrates how this feature works and how it can be used. Example: Let us search for all documents with invoice numbers that end in "72" Open Rev search and type "*72" in the invoice number search field and click on search     The search lists all documents which have invoice numbers ending in "72" as shown in the picture below.   Read More

Sorting results in REV

In the search results view, by default the documents are ordered by "Modified date". We can sort the results by other index fields by clicking on the column header.

Multiple columns can be sorted. For example assuming if we want to sort our Receipts repository by "Store" followed by "expiration date", we will click once on the Store column header, and then click twice on the "expiration date" column header. REV remembers your sorting preferences across sessions and will present your search results in y Read More
