If you would like to control the search more precisely, you can enter the following operators together with your search terms. We have listed various examples for you which clarify this:
Example: Marketing AND Plan
Provides results containing the terms "Marketing" and "Plan". This is the default and does not need to be entered separately.
OR search (OR)
Example: Marketing OR Plan
Provides results containing either "Marketing" or "Plan". Also, for instance, "Pension Plan" or "Marketing Budget".
Search with placeholder (*)
Provides results with terms beginning with the word "Plan". The asterisk symbolizes a placeholder for any further characters. This would, for example, find results for "Planning" or "Plannability", etc. The asterisk can be used anywhere except at the beginning.
Exact search (")
Example: "Marketing Plan"
Provides results for the exact term "Marketing Plan". Both terms must appear in the result in precisely this order. Use the quotation marks if you know the exact term you are looking for.
Exclude search terms (-)
Example: Marketing -Plan
Provides results containing the term "Marketing", but not "Plan".
Group operators (())
Example: (Marketing OR Business) AND Plan
With the help of brackets, you can arrange several operators in a sequence. In this example, results are provided that contain either "Marketing Plan" or "Business Plan". Always use brackets if you want to combine different operators.
