Using smart search

Amazon WorkDocs smart search looks for search terms in all files that you have permissions for. By default, it searches file names, metadata, comments, labels, user names, and file owners. It also searches content within text-searchable files, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, .txt, JavaScript, and other code files. Choose the Advanced search option to view and select available search filters.
