Advanced search makes it easy for you to build complicated search queries without writing complicated search query syntax.

To get started, follow these easy steps:

  1. Open the power search builder (the second search icon with the + sign on it).
  2. Select the data point you want to search on (e.g. document text, QC tag, document tags, users, metadata, etc.).
  3. Add as many additional search conditions as you like, making sure to select the right boolean drop down: AND, OR, AND NOT.

From searching on TEXT, to searching for specific TAGs or metadata, there are many fields to choose from with advanced search. And some choices are contextual to your project’s date. For instance, if you select the TAG field you will only see available tags in your project. This reduces “guess work.”

DO use the advanced search form to Test your results. This will show you how many documents your search hits on.

DO use the advanced search form to edit your queries. When you click Search, Logikcull will build the boolean query and insert it fully formatted into the main search bar.

DO NOT edit the text in the search bar after you run an advanced search. The text you change in the search bar IS NOT reflected in the advanced search form. So, if you need to edit the text, open the advanced search form and edit the text there, not in the search bar.

Best of all, you can save your work and re-run the advanced search at any time over new or existing data - just save the search!


With Bulk Keyword Search in Logikcull, all you need to do is add your keywords.
Click "test searches" to see the doc hits/page count/file size per line.
"Search all" allows you to see the resulting documents across your full list.
You can even click "search" for a specific line to see the specific hits from it in the results.

Best of all, the search is always run within your current set of filters! For instance, if you’re filtering on Tag = Responsive, and Custodian = Jane Doe, your keyword searches will run within this already filtered set.

Entering searches in the bulk keyword search defaults to searching the body text. However, you can specify your search with the syntax that refers to a specific metadata field. You may want to pull the appropriate syntax from the advanced search builder, as needed. For example, if you want to use the bulk keyword search to find multiple documents by unique id, add the following syntax in front of the id string:

Pro tip: We recommend a maximum of ~500 lines.
