In order to be able to search for a document in DESA'L, the following particularities must be taken into account

Minimum characters

A keyword must be at least 2 characters long and there is no limit to the length of the words. In this way it will not be possible to look for prepositions like "a". There will also be no restrictions on the number of keywords listed.

Uppercase and lowercase

Search is not case sensitive. This means that if we search for a word in uppercase we will also get as a result of the search those items that contain that same word in lower case or in any combination of uppercase and lowercase. Similarly, if we search for a lowercase word, we will also get all the items that contain the uppercase word.

So, for example, if we search for "management" we will get as a result all the objects that contain "management", "Management" or "MANAGEMENT".

Search with accents

Similar to capital letters, the search engine is not sensitive to accents either. This means that if the word we are looking for contains accents and we put the term without accents you will still get the result and vice versa.

For example, if you search for a "meeting" without an accent, you will also get results with an accent.

Characters allowed

SAVE allows you to search for keywords that contain the following characters:

  • ç
  • ñ
  • l·l
  • ü

Wildcard character

By default, SAVE only locates those items that contain the keyword (s) as specified by the user. This means that if the user searches for the keyword "Secretary", the items containing "Secretary", "Secretaries" or "Secretaries" will not be returned. Or if the user indicates a verb, only documents that contain the verbal ending as written by the user will be considered, but the rest will be ignored.

However, for cases where the user wants to search for words partially by their root, DESA'L offers the use of the wildcard character * that allows you to search for a word by its root. P. ex. if the user searches for "secretary *", DESA'L will return items containing "secretary", "secretaries", "secretaries", etc.
