Make your collections visible to everyone

By default, a collection is visible only to invited team members. The creator of the collection can now make it visible to everyone in the team by flipping a switch. The collection will then be added to everyone’s collection list and pinned to the top. One of the common use cases is to make standard details as a collection visible to everyone.

Have more flexibility when creating searches

We enabled search syntax that gives you more flexibility when creating searches. Click the help button and you can see how to use it.

TL;DR: Just type the words. The default logic operator is AND.

Popular operators are also supported, through so-called "simple query string" queries. You can use operators quotation, prefixes, negation, etc., just as you would with Google Search. Here is a list of supported operators:

  • " wraps a number of tokens to signify a phrase for exact match
  • - negates a single token
  • * at the end of a term signifies a prefix query
  • ( and ) signify precedence
  • | signifies OR operation
  • ~N after a word signifies edit distance (fuzziness)
  • ~N after a phrase signifies slop amount

To use one of these characters literally, escape it with a preceding backslash (\).

 

Example

Search operators allow one to tailor the search to be more precise. For example, if you search

bracing

and observe a lot of ceiling bracing in the results. If you are not interested in ceiling bracing, you can remove these ceiling bracing from the search results by using

bracing -ceiling

This then finds all the bracings that are not related to a ceiling.
