As you enter your search criteria into the search bar, the global search will expand to cover the screen.

For optimal search results, please note: 

A minimum of least three characters are required to begin a search. Global search can currently utilize both Starts with and Contains context. For example: 

  • Executing a search for the characters "and" will return results for users named both "Amanda" and "Andrew".  

Global search in BetterCloud also supports searching by email address. 

 

Auditing Results

Search results will be sorted by category into users, groups, and files, among others.

When you select a search result, your search criteria and other results will clear, and a right side flyout tab will appear, containing your selection's details. This behavior will be consistent across different result categories.
