    Zyncro Features: Search (II) 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    As we previously explained in the first part of this article, to search in Zyncro, you need to enter the term you want to search in the search box found in the top right corner of the screen.

    In the second part of this article, we’re going beyond the segmented search to show the additional options in the Zyncro search that enables you to get more specific results.

    You can do this in two ways:


    Segmented Search

    Enter the search criteria in the search box and when it shows you the results, you can use the fields that appear just below the search box on the right of the screen to refine the search:


    You can perform a search on a specific section of your Zyncro by selecting the section and clicking on Filter. Only the items you have selected (messages/files and folders/groups/departments/people) in the section will be shown.

    The sections can be:

    • Corporate newsfeed
    • Departments
    • Personal feed (the users you can see)
    • Private messages (your messages)
    • Your different work groups


    It gives you the option to restrict the search according to the person that posted the item (messages, files, etc.)

    This field is associated with your contacts and when you start to enter a text, it will suggest the users that contain the text entered.

    You can select more than one person in this field.


    With this field, you can display the items that have been published in Zyncro during a specific period of time on searching.

    You can choose whether to display items published during:

    • the last 24 hours
    • the last week
    • the last month
    • the last year
    • and it even lets you customize the search period: posts in Zyncro from one date to another.

    These search fields are restrictive, i.e. the number of results shown are reduced according to the combination of criteria entered.

    Advanced Search

    You can also perform precise searches using punctuation symbols in the text field.

    The punctuation symbols that have been enabled for more specific searches are quotation marks and the + sign. They can be used together and separately and their function changes according to the combination used.

    The most frequent search cases are:

    Simple search (without quotation marks or + sign): Enter in the search box Word A Word B Word C – It will show you items in Zyncro that contain any of the 3 words that you have entered in the search box, regardless of the order in which they appear.

    Search using the + sign: Enter in the search box Word A+Word B+Word C – It shows you items in Zyncro that contains the 3 words you have entered in the search. If they don’t contain all the words entered, they won’t be shown in the list of results.

    Search using quotation marks: Enter in the search box “Word A Word B Word C” – It shows you items in Zyncro that contain the exact expression entered between quotation marks.

    These options can be combined to create even more specific and precise searches.

    Zyncro Features: Search (I) 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    How do I perform searches in Zyncro?

    To perform a search in Zyncro, just enter the term you want to find in the search box (top right corner of the screen).

    The search results in Zyncro will appear grouped according to the different Zyncro sections: Messages, Files and Folders, Groups, Departments/Companies and People

    Beside the corresponding tab for each section, you’ll see the number of hits for the search criteria in brackets.

    Search Results

    Messages: This tab shows all messages appearing in conversations on the Zyncro wall that include the search word. The word is always highlighted in gray.

    The types of message that appear in this section (different according to the user) are:

    • Personal news that you or the people you follow have posted
    • Corporate news
    • Private messages you’ve sent
    • Messages from departments or companies you belong to or follow
    • Messages from the groups you participate in

    Files and folders: This tab lists all the files, folders and Zlinks created for sharing that include the search criteria in their title and that belong to the groups you have access to. Only for Business plans or higher: The tab also includes files whose content contains the search term (text files: TXT, PDF, Word, Excel, HTML, etc.). The term is highlighted in gray.

    Groups: This tab includes the groups that contain the search term in their title. Like messages and files, the term will be highlighted. This feature enables you to find all those groups whose name you can’t remember by using key terms.

    Departments/Companies (depending on the organization’s configuration): This last tab gives the departments or companies whose name or description contains the search term.

    People: This tab shows you a list of user contacts that include the search term in their profile (basic information, experience and skills, etc.) This is the best tool for managing internal talent!

    Next week, we’ll look at advanced search options.

    Zyncro 3.1.1: Centralized user management (LDAP), advanced searches and Google Maps 

    Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

    We’re proud to present the new version 3.1.1 of Zyncro with three new features we’re sure you’ll use: centralized user management with LDAP, advanced searches and integration with Google Maps


    For many SMEs and enterprises, the LDAP system, (Active Directory in the Microsoft environment), is essential for centralized management of all the network users, email and systems like SharePoint.

    The LDAP standard enables you to create a central user profile (with first name, last name, email address, password, etc.) for all corporate tools. When any changes are made in the data stored, it is automatically updated on the whole network. This is called Single Sign-On.

    Now Zyncro is a solution integrated with LDAP, meaning the access data for corporate users in a Zyncro organization can be managed (stored, queried, edited) by LDAP.

    The Zyncro data integrated with LDAP are:

    • First name
    • Last name
    • Email address

    To integrate with LDAP, the organization’s administrator needs to go to the User Management section in the Administration Panel, where the new function “Connect with LDAP” will appear.

    In this section, the LDAP administrator of the organization needs to complete all the mandatory fields with data for their LDAP system to complete the integration, click “Save” and integration will be complete.

    Advanced Search

    Zyncro has just taken its first step towards advanced searches (as well as segmented searches) enabling you to use symbols to refine the desired term.

    From now on in the Zyncro search, you can perform:

    • Exact searches for terms by entering them between quotation marks “ ”
    • Combined searches for terms using the + connector: term1 + term2 (it will only return messages, files, groups or profiles that contain both terms)

    Google Maps in Zyncro

    Finally, you can now insert and view Google Maps in the Company or Departament profile, in the More about us section.

    To do this, you first need to get the HTML code generated by Google Maps for an address by following these steps:

    • Search for the address in Google Maps
    • Click the button to get the HTML code

    • Select the code that starts with <iframe…

    • Paste it in the More about us section, after enabling HTML edition and… your map will appear in Zyncro!

    More Zyncro integrations to add to the collection!!!
