3. Searching for Files

Searching and filtering on the Search Files page is identical to that of the Search Studies page.

On the Search Files page, the Data Hub Data Administrator also has the ability to search for column header names within data files by using the Advanced Search.

The Advanced Search is a more detailed method of finding information within the Data Hub. The Advanced Search options are a set of filters that narrow the scope of a search query to eliminate irrelevant information to help you find the exact content you are looking for.

To use the Advanced Search, select the link available next to the search bar.

Advanced Search

Select your search type and enter the header name or file name in the search bar. Suggestions will appear as you type in a keyword. Select the “Apply Filters” button to apply the advanced search.

Note: Users can use Advanced Search using multiple search conditions: searching by different study metadata fields (i.e. File Name, phs, Subject etc.), search types (i.e Exact, Starts With, Contains), logical operators (i.e. and, or, not), using queries/subqueries for more detailed search.

When using Advanced Search, main search will be disabled.
