    Default Search problem for ZCS documents

    Searches seem only to locate documents that you own. That is, shared documents, even those to which you have been granted MANAGER rights, are NOT found during a search if you are not the creator of the document. This, by my mind, is one of the most important features of shared documents. Am I doing something wrong?

    Default Search defaulting to Local Only

    This is a bit of a UI thing right now that we need to straighten out. What's happening is that the search is by default (for performance reasons) only searching local folders. Unfortunately there's no way in the search builder, no obvious setting or checkbox, that will make it search remote folders.

    Anyway, obviously we've got some usability and UI work on this: that's one of the reasons the whole Documents thing is still tagged as 'Beta' in 4.0.x...

    In the meantime your best bet is to manually create your search string (do you have the user pref 'always show search string' turned on? Turn it on and then use the Search Builder build the query you want) and then add a clause at the end so your search looks like this:
    my_search_terms (is:local or is:remote)
    That will do what you want.

    Default

    I understand the concept now and suggest that the remote vs. local selection be available as a pulldown or checkbox that can be done on the fly rather than constantly changing in the options.

    Also, the search example provided doesn't work for me but perhaps I'm still doing something wrong. Search builder currently has no provision for searching documents which is another needed enhancement. The only way I'm able to search even my local docs is to use the pulldown in the search window to select "Pages and Documents." Is there another way to search docs?

    I'm searching for a test doc with a title of "mikeremote" so my search string using the "Pages and Documents" pull-down is "mikeremote (is:local or is:remote)" ...but nothing found.
