SOLIDWORKS PDM Quick Search is a Google-like way to search the PDM vault without having to bring up the traditional Search Data Card. It enables you to just start typing in search terms and quickly see matching results.
The quick search box is available in the SOLIDWORKS PDM File Explorer as a part of the SOLIDWORKS PDM menu bar. You can search using single text strings, defined system variables, or combination of logic operators like AND, OR, or NOT.
Although you can start using the SOLIDWORKS PDM Quick Search straight out of the box right after setting up and putting files in the vault, you can expand its capabilities with some administrative setup.
Join us on Thursday, August 11, 2022 at 10:00AM ET as TriMech System Architect – Data Management, Keith Thompson, reviews how to use the SOLIDWORKS PDM Quick Search and how to expand its usefulness by making administrative changes.
