Each module of Spire includes a search box at the top of the list. Word(s) can be entered and the list will be filtered to the records that include the word(s) searched for. For the first word entered it will include partial words, but if another word is entered then both words to have to be complete. For instance if “hos” is entered then all records with “hos” will show. However if a “black hose” is required then “hos black” will not work. The user must enter “hose black” to achieve the desired search result.
The search feature looks into most of the fields in the database records including any communications or notes entered.
The user can also put an ‘or’ between words and then results with either words will show in the search results. Another option to use in searching is a minus symbol (-) which produces an exclusion for the search. As an example, if in the inventory list the user types bar -caramel then all items with bar in the record will show up with the exception of the ones with caramel in them.
Searches can then be exported to Excel or .csv.
