3. Fuzzy Search

Fuzzy Search is a search technique that allows you to find similar words in addition to exact matches

Previous step: Search Options


Fuzzy Search retrieves results that differ by only one or two letters from the search term, and it is useful with misspellings and spelling variations. 

To access the fuzzy search options, simply enter the word or phrase you're searching for in the search bar of the Global Text Search option. Initiate the search and then click on Show advanced filters.

Global text search (1)

Within this section, you will find a Fuzziness option, where you can choose from "None, Medium, or High" depending on how precise you want the matches to be. The search results will include both the exact matches and any variations found.

For example, if you search for "house" with a high fuzzy search setting, you may also get search results such as "howse," "horse," and "howses."

Additionally, you have the option to use the other advanced filters such as "Title" or "Collection ID" to further narrow down your search and enhance your results.

Fuzzy Search is a search technique that allows you to find similar words in addition to exact matches. It retrieves results that differ by only one or two letters from the search term, and it is useful with misspellings and spelling variations. 

To enable it, check the Fuzzy search option and launch the Search. The results will contain both the extract matches and the variants (for example, when searching for “house”, fuzzy search finds also “howse, “horse” and “howses”).
