How To Use Boolean Search Tips Like A Pro!

In today's fast-paced digital world, we now have access to more information than we can process. This is why business intelligence platforms, like EditorEye, are vital when providing context for all your internal and external information sources.

Complex terms are commonly used by knowledge workers to find and source information. For example this query below:

("business analyst" or "systems analyst" or "system analyst" or "data analyst" or "requirements analyst" or "functional analyst") and crystal and report* and analy* and data near analy* and not inventory and not retail and not (ecommerce or "e-commerce" or b2b or b2c)

But by breaking these queries down into simple component parts, you can easily create very complex topic results using advanced boolean search queries.

Aside from the usual terms (AND, NOT, OR and source lists) see below for some extended query language terms which many systems use these days to refine your results and discover relevant content.

Using these advanced boolean search tips will help you make quicker searches and find better results!
