Copernic Desktop Search has been beneficial to over 4,000,000 users and the business world can now also benefit from it.

According to International Data Corporation, their survey reveals that information worker, you, spend most of their time performing document-related activity. Here are some interesting facts on how workers spend their time:

  • 5 hours/week searching for documents.
  • 2.3 hours/week searching for, but not finding documents

That’s at least 2.3 hours of hours wasted per week for having not the appropriate tools. According to their studies, time wasted in document creation and management activities costs the organization $ 9,071 per information worker per week. That’s a lot in a year when you can install a tool, such as Copernic Desktop Search, for the price of $ 64.90 USD per license. The Return on Investment calculation is easily made.

You can chat with our Product Specialist if you have any questions.

5 Ways to Perform Advanced Searches With myCopernic on the Go!

Since the release of myCopernic on the Go!, we noticed that our user could benefit from some advanced search criteria that can be used within the product. We have narrowed it down to 5 easy to use tips to help you perform advanced searches from the main search box available in myCopernic on the Go!.

  • Use the “@all” keyword or launch an empty query to retrieve everything By proceeding this way, you will be able to see the entire content of your index and all the documents contained in each category.
  • Use logical operators such as:

    • AND : retrieves documents that contain all keywords. This is the default search performed.
      Ex.: flower soil is the same as flower AND soil and retrieves only the documents that contain both flower and soil keywords.
    • OR: retrieves documents that contain either one or both keywords.
    • NOT : retrieves documents that do not contain the specified keyword.
      Ex.: flower NOT soil retrieves only the documents that contain flower but not soil.
  • Exact phrase searches: use the double quote to perform an exact phrase search.
    Ex.: “flower soil” will retrieve documents that contain exactly flower soil written in this order. This will limit the results obtained with only the relevant information you need.
  • Use field keywords: for advanced users that wish to bypass the refine fields but still want to perform refined searches. Here is a list of some of the field keywords available:

    Fields Type Values Examples
    @emailto
    @emailcc
    @emailfrom
    Text   @emailto=George
    @emailcc=“George Smith”
    For exact word search, use the double quotes
    @emailfrom=copernic
    @subject Text   @subject=meeting
    @subject=“meeting with law firm”
    This field can only be used if the Desktop Search tool used on the queried PC is Copernic Desktop Search.
    @importance Choice
    (Drop down list)
    0 = low
    1 = normal
    2 = high
    @importance=2
    @importance>1
    @importance<=2
    @mediaartist Text   @mediaartist=U2
    @mediaalbum Text   @mediaalbum=“no line on the horizon”
    @filename Text   @filename=document1212
    @filename=“Game rules”
    @extension Text   @extension=xls
    @extension=xls AND copernic
    @uri Text   @uri=MyDocuments
    @uri=“C:MyDocumentsmusic”
    @taskstatus Choice
    (Drop down list)
    0 = Not started
    1 = In progress
    2 = Completed
    3 = Waiting
    4 = Deferred
    @taskstatus=0
    @taskstatus<2
    @taskstatus>=1
    Note that there are other field keywords available but this list highlights the most commonly used.
  • You can also use operators on field keywords
    Possible operators are =, <, >, <=, >=, <>.
    With these operators you will be able to narrow down the results in a flash to get closer to what you are searching for.

We hope that these tips help you pinpoint your searches with myCopernic on the Go! and help you save time by getting exactly what you want with a single query.
