Overview

There are two types of search in the Wisetail LMS Learner Tool; Global Search, and Local Search.

While the difference may not be immediately clear, Local Search works on limited scope with per-System-Page results, whereas Global Search returns results on every domain, from module contents, media files, user contributions, users, as well as everything included in each variety of Local Search.

Local Search

Local Search: The Learn Page

The search on the Learn Page will only locate Module results, and only returns matches for the  following aspects of modules: 

  • Module Title
  • Module Description
  • Module Tags

Local Search: The Connect Page

You will sometimes hear people refer to this as "Community Results." This is limited in scope to a user's:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Username
