DateSearch Add-on

DateSearch is in charge of searching for programs, events and other contents in which dates play a major role.

By using Sophora's DateSearch module you can browse comfortably through single calendar days in order to look at all contents of a specific day, for instance a day which is connected with a television context for a fast and clear access to broadcasts and posts on that day.

Use the DateSearch Calendar to Filter Your Documents

Highlights include:

  • Optimized view for the date-based search occurs parallel to the search
  • Selection of days via calendar picker. Browse through days
  • Content-related drill down to narrow down your search, for instance to series of broadcasts or events
  • Availability of multiple searches, such as program search and event search, between the module Date Search can be switched over among each other
  • Possibility to unfold components directly in the search result, e.g. for contributions in programs or for individual events of series of events
  • Automatic update of the search result after filter changes
  • Opening of documents (as well as their related components) by double clicking within the search result
  • Using drag & drop of documents from the search results and insert these ones into other documents
  • Content-related filtering on multiple levels depending on the configured selection value field
  • Now the structure of nested and escalated filing structure (Program / Events > Day 1 > Day 2 …) is superfluous
  • Complex and recurring searches, executed by the standard search, are superfluous as well
  • Flexible configuration for various application scenarios

Adapting DateSearch to your requirements

Adapt Sophora’s module Date Search according to your requirements (as well as your data model). The module comes along with a separate “View” within Sophora’s DeskClient. You can configure the following elements:

  • The label for naming the view, for instance “program search”
  • The documents’ type: Searches for documents of the same type, e.g. “Program”
  • The relevant date field: A date-related property out of the document type, for instance the broadcasting time
  • The relevant selection value field for a content-related filter, a selection list including program series can be named as an example. These one is displayed in the view as a dropdown. In case a multiple selection value field is chosen, various interdependent filters are displayed in the view
  • Start time of a day
  • A component group from the document type, which contents are able to be hinged in the view, for instance contributions of single programs
  • Additional columns, which are displayed

You can also configure various specialized searches. Editors can switch over between various searches within the view. Each configuration owns a separate system document in the administration area.

New and Noteworthy

Flexible Display of the Search Result

In order to create a better overview for the user, in the module Date Search, it is now possible to more precisely set what should be displayed in the search results. Technically speaking, the function is based on a dynamic table in which the configuration can be stored.
