New Feature Alert: Boolean Search

Our new platform launched a few months back, and we've been working feverishly to add even more new features. Last week we introduced the ability to use Boolean search terms, such as AND, NOT and OR, and the plus (+) and minus (-) symbols.

From the Find an Answer to a Tech Question pod on our home page (when logged in), you may use these terms and symbols to refine your search.
  • Use plus (+) or minus (-) to force inclusion or exclusion of a particular word or phrase (in quotes), as in dog cat -mouse
  • Use AND, NOT, and OR to specify the logic of your query
  • Group terms with parentheses, as in "double spaced" AND (page OR paragraph) 
  • Boolean terms are case-insensitive (may be upper- or lowercase)
  • OR is generally implied and not necessary
We're always striving to make your Atomic Learning experience easier and more productive. If you'd like to make a suggestion, please contact us.
