A powerful search engine
GoldFynch features a robust search engine that offers a great deal of functionality and flexibility.
Quick Searches and the Suggestions tab
The search bar, always found at the top of the GoldFynch interface, allows for quick and easy initiation of searches. Just type a phrase into the search bar while in the ‘suggestions’ tab of the search bar and hit the
enter button to perform a quick search.
Special quick search queries
In addition to simple text searches, we have implemented some specific quick search query formats:
- Search by keywords
- Search by dates
- Search by email metadata
- Search by file name
- Search by file type
- Search for files in productions by Bates number
Once a search has been made, the results can always be found by navigating to the ‘Search’ view from the left pane.
The advanced search system allow for more complex searches to be performed, from which highly-refined results can be produced. Advanced searches can be carried out from the ‘advanced search’ tab of the search bar, and the ‘advanced search’ view which is accessed from the left pane. Here’s a detailed look at how to perform advanced searches:

Once you’ve carried out a search, you’ll find filters in the right side panel to help you narrow down searches.
