Today we’re launching a few new features for Papyrs. Let’s start with the biggest one:
With Papyrs it is now possible to search within all your pages, comments, contacts and profiles, attachments, and submitted forms. Just start typing in the search bar and Papyrs returns the results nearly instantaneously. It has find-as-you-type. Never again waste more than a few seconds to find back that document, that attachment to a certain form, or a discussion with your co-worker. Of course Papyrs will only show items in the search results for which you have the necessary permissions.

Searches within attachments
Papyrs will also searche within attachments. You can find text contained in PDF files, Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. Do you want us to search within other types of documents as well? Just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
There are also a number of advanced search options:
|Keyword||Finds all pages, files, etc, that contain that keyword.|
|Keyword AnotherKeyword||Finds all pages, files, etc, that contain both keywords.|
|Keyword -AnotherKeyword||Finds all pages, files, etc, that contain Keyword but not AnotherKeyword.|
|Keyword | Anotherkeyword||Finds all pages, files, etc, that contain either of the keywords.|
|(One & Keyword) | Anotherkeyword||Use braces for more complex queries…|
|“exact match”||Use quotes to search for an exact sequence of keywords.|
In the previous version of Papyrs links looked pretty complex. A typical page would have a link that looked like https://yoursite.papyrs.com/page/5441/This-is-title-of-the-page. Hard to remember and hard to type! Also, if you shared the page with others by email or if you made the page open to the public the link would change. It would start with https://yoursite-public instead). That just wasn’t very convenient, so we’ve changed it. Links to your papyrs pages now look like this: https://yoursite.papyrs.com/Your-Page. Simple and easy to type! If the page is shared or public, people you share the page with can access the page with the same link.
When you go to the document’s settings page you can change the location (URL):

1. You can now share profile pages by email address and make profile pages public.
2. You can now link to conversations on pages and on the Activity Feed. Easy if you want to send a link to a conversation via Instant Message or by email.

We’re really thrilled to start the year with these new additions, and we think the Search is going to save everybody a lot of time! More new features coming soon!
