New D2 search feature

News

Published: 18Mar2019

D2 is a web-based document management solution used at McGill for storing institutional data, such as project documents, briefs, proposals, etc.

We have just added a new Public Search feature, which allows for greater precision when searching for content throughout D2.

How does the search feature work?

1) From the Search tab in D2, click Public Searches > Spaces

2) There are 3 search options:

  • Search D2 Documents – finds documents that contain the search term in the file name
  • Search D2 Documents by Keywords - finds documents containing the search term within the document
  • Search D2 Space - finds spaces containing the search term in the space name
