Searching Across All Records • Records Search provides the ability to search across Requisitions, Purchase Orders, and Invoices at the same time. • When doing this, users will be presented with search results that span across the multiple records types. • Searches on a specific Records type (PR, PO, or Invoice) are still allowed. • All Records is the default Records type for performing record searches.
Searchable Fields in Simple Search Box • The following fields are searchable in the simple search box: • Requisition Number • Purchase Order Number • Invoice Number • Supplier Invoice Number • Contract Number • Catalog Number • Requisition Name • Supplier Name • You may also enter a combination of the above fields and the search will treat it as an AND search. • You may also perform a starts with search on any of the Records numbers.

Records Search – Simple Search • For Simple Search there are three main selections. These include: • What type of records do you want to search? Select a specific record type (Requisition, Purchase Order, or Invoice) or ALL records. The default is to search across all records. • What are you looking for? The following information can be entered in the search box: Requisition Number, Purchase Order Number, Invoice Number, Supplier Invoice Number, Contract Number, Catalog Number, Requisition Name, and Supplier Name. • What dates do you care about? Users can now select from relative date ranges for the query. They can choose by number of days, calendar span, fiscal year, or other, which allows custom date ranges. Examples of relative ranges include last 30 days, last 60 days, Last Year, etc.
Simple Search - Example • An example of the simple search would be to search for purchase orders to Office Max since January 1, 2011. • And the results are: (based on test data in the buyWays test site)

(Ex. If you perform a Purchase Order search your post filter options will be PO specific and will look different from your post filter options if you do a PR search) • You are allowed to select multiple post filter options. (Ex. You can select 2 suppliers and 2 departments at the same time)
