In the Document Management Software NetDocuments, you can create a group of custom searches to use over and over again. Sometimes I get a little curious about what other people in my company are doing and I like to run a search for all documents that have been created in the past 24 hours. Since I used this search so much, I have saved it to my home screen. Here is how I did it:
Step 1: In NetDocuments go to the Advanced Search. Make sure all Cabinets are selected.
Step 2: In the Created By Line, add Date as –1 and to as +0
Step 3: Click Search
This will search for everything from now to 24 hours ago.
Step 4: Save the Search and give it a name. I usually put it in my User Folder. It can be put anywhere.
Step 5: Click the Star next to the searches name
In my home screen, I have a section called Saved Searches where I keep items like this.
Now when I log into NetDocuments, I can quickly do a Search for all Documents created with the last 24 hours. I could also have modified the search to be all documents that I was the Author.
