We have some improvements in the works that we're excited for you to experience.
to try our new, faster beta site.
We will be maintaining our current version of the site until the middle of CY 2023,
so you can switch back as our improvements continue.
These can be used on any field marked as "Keyword"
Search for a phrase: Use quotation marks ( " " ) to search for exact phrases. eg. "shall be liable"
Keywords: Enter multiple keywords in any order. eg. income tax or tax income
Boolean: Refine results by adding 'AND'. eg. income AND tax, you can also exclude results with 'NOT'. eg. income NOT tax
Wildcard single character - include ? in the search term eg. wom?n will return results for woman and women
Wildcard multiple characters - include * in the search term eg. Su* will return Susan, Suzanne. eg. *ots will return ballots, pilots
Proximity Searching: search for two words within a certain proximity of each other. eg. "miracle rescue"~5 will return docs where the word miracle exists within 5 words of the word rescue.
Range Queries: search for documents within a range of values: eg. number:[25 TO 30] will return documents with a number field where the number value is between 25 and 30.
Boost searching: you can decide which search term is the most relevant. eg. James Tax^2 Ballot^3.
The number after the ^ is the boost value, by default this value is 1. Increasing the boost value makes that search term the most relevant and will be ordered before any other search term with a lower boost value.
