Find any resource with global search

Search and deploy…

Searching for parts of text or a particular phrase can be a long and arduous task. Expert Estimation eases this process by providing you with the ability to search globally throughout a project.

The Global Search is displayed alongside the Project Messages function in the application’s status bar, found at the bottom of the main window. You can access the Global Search by clicking on the Search icon or by using the shortcut CTRL F.

Searching with the Global Search window is done by entering keywords to be searched in the Search For field. You may control the areas in which you wish to search in a project by selecting the information types from the Search In drop-down.

Search results are presented in the main table below the search fields. By default, results are grouped per result location Direct Cost Schedule, Resource Explorer, Direct Cost Schedule – Cost Estimate, etc. and display the text that was found with the keywords highlighted. You can navigate to the location of the resulting text by double-clicking on the row you wish to view.
