Enterprise Tip: Catalogue Search Items

by Brad Halcrow
February 17, 2014
A feature our Trainers often find underutilised is the Search Items field for Catalogue items.

You'll find the Search Items field under: Materials > Catalogue > Group Name > Sub-Group Name > Part > Item > Details Tab.

How to use Search Items

One powerpoint may be referred to as many different things (2025, GPO, double powerpoint, 2025WE etc.) so you could enter all these terms in the Search Items field. You may want to add additional search terms to group your results with other items, such as the brand.

When you search for any of those terms, that catalogue item will appear in the results. You can use the Global search or the Catalogue search.

If you're using the Global search, the results will appear in the results list after you have clicked Search, not in the search suggestions.

Use Show Favourites Only to further filter your results.

Using Search Items with a Bar Code scanner

1. Place your cursor in the Search Items field then scan the item using your barcode scanner. This will insert the barcode into the Search Items field.

2. To later find the item in your catalogue, place your cursor into the search field (Catalogue or Global), scan the item, click Search. As above your item will appear in the results.
