Based on your feedback, we’ve made a few updates to the search functionality in Vinny:

1/ DEFAULT SEARCH MODE

In User Settings, you can now set a Search preference: Exact or Relative.

Exact Search will add double quotes to your search terms and give you a precise match. With this setting, the double quotes will be added to your search terms by default.

Relative Search is the default setting. With this selected, your search terms will pull up exact as well as related search results.

To change Search preferences, go to User Management > select the user profile > Search > Quick Search > select from the dropdown menu.

Note 📣 Exact and Relative Search settings are only available for Quick Search and Boolean Search. They will follow the same user settings chosen for Quick Search.

2/ QUICK SEARCH

In the Quick Search bar, we’ve brought back double quotes and operators (i.e. AND, OR, NOT). This will give you more control over exact search terms, plus you can type keywords to quickly discover the numbers of Candidates you have in your database for those keywords.

Note 📣 The double quotes give you an exact match. You can remove these by clicking the arrow in the box to the left side of the word and this will perform a partial match. I.e. “Java” will only return the exact Java keywords, but Java will return Javascript and anything else linked to the word Java.

3/ ADVANCED SEARCH

a. SWITCH BETWEEN BOOLEAN AND FIELD SEARCH

You can now quickly switch between Field Search or Boolean Search. In addition, this will remain sticky so that when you come back to Advanced Search from another page, Vincere will remember the mode that was last used.

b. UI UPDATES

When using Boolean search, the "Search Parameters" section has been moved to the top so that it's easier to focus on.

c. "DOUBLE QUOTES" IS NOW ADDED TO SINGLE WORDS TO ENSURE EXACT MATCHES

Removing the "double quotes" will perform a partial search.

4/ PHONE SEARCH UPDATE

We have updated Search so it no longer requires a country code. Just add in the number, including area code, and presto, it will appear. Previously, you had to add a country code for phone searches.

Also by removing the "double quotes," you can perform a partial search on a phone number, just in case you can't remember the entire number.
