Searching sub folders (another request)

Hello,

There are quite a few requests in the idea bank relating to folder and sub-folder searching. When can we expect NetDocuments to improve this process?

I received the following request from one of our users and its a valid request. I frankly surprises me that sub folder searching is such a chore for our users. Is it possible to have that “Search Subfolder” a default option at a higher level in searches? To make it appear the user needs to click into a folder. It’d be nice to have that checkbox appear at the workspace level if a user goes into Advanced search. Or, even better, default searching of subfolders.


The calls to improve searching folders are going to increase. Not all imports to NetDocuments come from a prior document management data set.

Thank you,

yes please >> we have just moved one team's files from another server into ND with multiple subfolders and it wont even search  it because of the over 20 subfolder limit. it is impossible to search without opening each folder.

Agreed.  We have users that want their folders regardless of the DocType process and will not change their workflow.  It would be great if they could have unlimited folder searching.

This is not a request for improvement - this is a request to fix a show stop error.  The whole purpose of using a DMS is the ability to search the entire DMS.  There isn't any "limit on subfolders" concept that has any application here.
