Filtering and Filter Schemes

Fulltext Search

Fulltext Search

You can search for items using the magnifying glass in the navbar as well as the Quick search field in most lists in Daktela. Enter at least 3 characters and press Enter to start your search. 

How Fulltext Search Works

  1. Fulltext first tries to find email addresses.

  2. Fulltext search accepts only letters, numbers, and underscore (_). Any other symbols are replaced by a space. For example, if you write "D&ktela", it will search for "D ktela".

  3. Characters with diacritics are replaced by standard characters. If you write text without diacritics it will also search for results with diacritics.

  4. Fulltext doesn't search for stop words. English and Czech stopwords are set up automatically. If you want to add any custom stopwords, please contact us.

  5. The minimum number of characters searched is 3 and the maximum is 63.

Unlimited Retention

In the CRM module (Contacts, Accounts and Records), fulltext always searches all of your saved items.

Limited Retention

The following limitations apply:

  • In Tickets, Records, Articles, and Activities that are part of a ticket, fulltext only searches for items that have been edited in the retention period.

  • In Activities without a ticket, fulltext only searches for items created in the retention period.

The retention period is 180 days by default. If you need to increase your retention period, please contact us.

Filter Items in a List

Filter Items in a List

You can filter most lists in Daktela.

  • Click Filter at the top of the list. The Search dialog will open.
