Search allows you to discover all the Projects and Exclusion Zones that have been loaded into SmarterWX. You can also search for all of the Opportunities and Exclusion Zone Conflicts for your organisation.
Start searching by selecting Search from the toolbar. A search will be triggered automatically and the map will update with the search results and the first page of results will show in the list.
Zooming in or moving the map will always trigger a new search. The search is designed to return results in blocks of 200 items. Where there are more than 200 items the search will return the 200 nearest to the centre of the map. You can load more records by clicking on the Load More tool.
Each time you click on Load More an additional 200 items will be added to the map. However, you are probably better off zooming in closer to see a manageable number of results!
To search for a specific location on the map, choose the location search tool. This will open up the location search bar where you can type in an address.
Your most recent address searches are always displayed in the “Recent Locations” section so you can quickly return to them.
Selecting Search Filters
The search filters allow you to choose which items are display on the map. The set of filters that are available will depend on the “Type” you are searching for. For example, when searching for projects you can choose the project classification. When searching for opportunities, you can limit the results to only show archived opportunities.
Date Range is based on the item’s Start and End Dates. The search will return all items where the start and end dates overlap with the selected Date Range. For example, if you search for 1/1/2017 to 31/12/2017, it would return a project with dates 1/10/2017 to 30/09/2018 because the two ranges overlap.
Searching by Text
You can switch between search filters and text search by choosing from the options at the right-hand side of the search bar. Text searching will search for both the ID and the Notes for projects and exclusion zones.
When your required item is shown in the list, click on the item to display details for the item.
The text search will favour items in your organisation above those in other organisations. For example, if searching by “123” the search results will show projects with IDs starting 123xxxx for your organisation before showing projects from other organisations. Also, an exact ID match will always display first in the list.
Understanding the List View
A map is capable of displaying many more items than a list. The list provides an additional view into the data shown in the map. In the picture below, there are 1000 items being displayed on the map. The list is broken up into separate pages and clicking through each page at a time will display the data.
Selecting the “Sort By” option on the list will show you the items from the map in the order you select. The list will never show items that are not displayed on the map.
