Axero Solutions adds advanced custom search filters to the popular Communifire social networking platform. Now Communifire communities can present all different types of content from diverse spaces or networking groups, without the need for additional programming or complex queries.
(San Diego, CA, USA) – May 18, 2013 – Axero Solutions, an established technology leader in the enterprise social collaboration and networking marketplace, has announced a new custom search filter functionality for its flagship Communifire product. With this innovative feature administrators can now create customized filter groups to make it faster and easier for members to find the content they need. The upgrade promises to facilitate knowledge sharing while making the whole Communifire experience more exciting, engaging, user-friendly, and productive.
“Communifire has always been focused on improving the experience of the end-user to enhance creative collaboration and social networking," explains Tim Eisenhauer, Axero Solutions Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “So there are many quick and easy ways to discover and share content. Now, with these new features, searching can be uniquely customized to better meet the particular needs and preferences of any community.”
The new search filters take advantage of the Managed Tag Groups functionality. Content throughout the platform can be tagged by users to make it easier to find. Tagging also enables content connectivity based on shared keywords. These can be free-form tags, or administrators can establish groups of defined tags in order to easily encourage standardization of tagging nomenclature and spelling. A company might set up a managed tag group, for example, based on office locations. Content related to the San Francisco branch could be consistently tagged using the standard term “San Francisco” rather than alternative versions like “San Fran,” “Frisco,” or “SFO.”
Once they have been created these Managed Tag Groups can be used as search filters. Members could, for instance, limit a search only to content specific to the San Francisco office. Or managed tags such as “All Policies” or “All Forms” could be created in order to tie different types of resources together across various departments and groups. That way users can filter search results based on the particular type of content they want to find.
These custom search filters are an addition to the preexisting filters for spaces and for content types such as wikis, files, and blogs. Meanwhile all of these optional filters are integrated with an automatic filter that ensures that users only have access to the content they have clearance or permission to view.
