Quick Tip –Search queries using abbreviations

March 8, 2017

This week we were sent a helpful tip by one of our users about how they search for screens and reports using abbreviations. In one of our previous articles about OnRamps intuitive search, we spoke about how typing in search queries letter by letter can narrow down your search results.

OnRamps intuitive search functions also allow users to type in multiple word abbreviations to narrow searches queries. For example, if you recall two or three words from a screen or report with a long title you can type abbreviations for each word.

Using two abbreviations to find a screen.

Using three abbreviations to find a screen.

Using four abbreviations to find a report.

We hope that you found this quick tip useful. If you have any Quick Tips you would like to share with other users email us at:
