Indica supports searching within specific fields extracted from you documents. Examples are the file name of a document or the subject of an email document. When performing a search you can specify a field. We a field is not specified, Indica will search in all fields.

You can search any field by typing the field name followed by a colon ":" and then the term you are looking for.

As an example, let’s assume you would like to search for a document with the file name "Searching_is_fun.docx", you can enter:

file_name: "Searching_is_fun.docx"

Note: The field is only valid for the term that it directly precedes, so the query

file_name:Searching is fun.docx

Will search for files with the file name "Searching". It will additionally search for the words “is” and “fun.docx” in any of the fields.
