Mike’s Minute: Techstreet Enterprise Tip of the Month— Run a blank search to see everything on your subscription

Mike Visser

Hear from our Techstreet Enterprise Senior Product Manager, Mike Visser: 

The primary visual focus on the Techstreet Enterprise home page is a search form. Similarly, a search form carries over to every other page in the application. Search is the primary vehicle for finding standards in Techstreet Enterprise (though don’t forget the Browse feature!). Something worth noting about our search form is that, if you do a blank search, don’t enter any search terms and just click the Search button. You’ll get a results set that includes all the most recent versions of the standards on your subscription. You’ll see a message like this at the top of your search results: 

“Your search resulted in <numeric string> documents for “All Documents” among current, subscribed Documents. Download spreadsheet of results.”  

<numeric string> will be the total number of current documents on your subscription. You can click on the “Download spreadsheet of results” link to download a spreadsheet that includes a row for each document in the search results, and therefore on your subscription. Each row includes some basic metadata about each standard, including a link the product detail record. 

Once you have completed a search like this, you can use all the filters that are available to you through a regular search. You can limit by, say, Publisher, or limit it to just the documents with redlines on your subscription. It’s an easy way to drill down into the collection of standards you license through Techstreet Enterprise.
