Uploading Advanced Search Templates

This article is only applicable to users of Onna Discovery and Onna Enterprise.

Creating an advanced search from a template allows for more complex queries that would otherwise take longer with a normal Advanced Search.

To get started, click on the download icon next to the Advanced search from the template panel:

Open the spreadsheet once it finishes downloading. The spreadsheet contains multiple columns that represent searchable fields where you can specify search terms. Template searches are all text-based where the document contains the specified text.

To get started select the column you want to search on. Below the column header enter a search value. For example, if you want to search for a contract within the extracted text of documents you can enter the following:

The other columns within the template remain in the spreadsheet with their values empty. Once the advanced search template is complete, save the spreadsheet and upload the template by clicking the upload icon:

After the upload, you will return to the Advanced Search page with the generated query and its results. The initial Advanced Search name and query are automatically generated but you can update them by clicking the edit icon:
