Advanced Search in vWork

What is advanced search in vWork ?

When searching for jobs in the jobs page you can use filters or special terms to enhance and narrow down your searching.

How do you use advanced search?

When you click into the search box on the jobs page you are presented with the following options:

You can add as many of the above filters to your search as you like, just by starting to type your filter or by just clicking the filter, then the search options presented to you.
So for example to search for jobs after May 2nd, assigned to Joe, with the customer Monster you would add the below search filters:

After:2nd May 2016 Worker:Joe Bloggs Customer:Monster  Group:Any

This gives you the ability to get extremely powerful granular search when you are looking for jobs in the list.


Using modifier words to your search (AND, NOT, OR)

You also have the option of adding the following terms to your search:

Combinations One or the Other Exclusions Parenthical Quotes
AND  OR  NOT  ( )  " " 

So a good example would be:
if you Search for: Customer1 OR Customer 2

In the Jobs search box, you will get results for all customer1 and customer2's jobs combined.

Advanced search is case sensitive so NOT will work, not will not work.

These search terms can be very powerful when combined together as in the examples below.
We have several examples of the different searches you can run and the results obtained.

Type AND between all the words you want to search: dog AND cat AND mouse

Put exact words in quotes: "rat terrier"

Type OR between all the words you want: miniature OR standard

Put NOT just before words you don't want: NOT rodent, NOT "Jack Russell"

Put parenthesis around words you want to separate: (horse AND donkey) NOT cow


More Advanced Detail with Examples Below:

If you would like to search for an exact phrase, you can
enclose the phrase in quotation marks. You can use
these in addition to other modifiers.
• “product manager”
• “account representative”
• “executive assistant”
If you would like to do a complex search you can
combine terms and modifiers.
This will find both software engineers and software
• software AND (engineer OR architect)
• (lead designer OR lead design) role
• (human resources) AND “customer service”
If you would like to search for profiles which include two
terms you can separate those terms with the uppercase
word AND. However, you don’t have to use AND — if
you enter two terms it will assume that there is an AND
between them.
• software AND engineer
• software engineer
• “customer service” and hospitality
• “instructional design” AND “e-learning”
• human resources
If you would like to broaden your search to find profiles
which include one or more terms. You can separate those
terms with the uppercase word OR.
• “Pitney Bowes” OR “HewlettPackard”
• Helpdesk OR “Help Desk” OR “Technical
• “Vice President” OR VP OR “V.P.” OR SVP OR EVP
• "account executive" OR "account exec" OR
"account manager" OR "sales executive" OR
"sales manager" OR "sales representative"
If you would like to do a search but exclude a particular term, type that term with an uppercase NOT immediately before it .
Your search results will exclude any profile containing that term.

• NOT director
• (Google OR Salesforce) NOT Linkedin
• director NOT executive NOT vp NOT “Vice President"
