[FAQ] How do I use search filters on E2E™︎ support forums?

Here you will learn how to use the search filters on E2E forums.  The search filters are great tools on the search results page to narrow down your results.

  • The search filters allow you to better find your answers when searching on E2E technical support forums.

    1. Begin by searching for answers using a part or tool number (see this FAQ "[FAQ] How do I search for expert answers on E2E support forums?").

    Tip: Providing keywords in addition to a part number will provide more specific results.

    2. On the search results page, you will see several types of filters (shown in the image below):

    a. Below the search bar, you can view results by "Post" or "Thread" using the toggle button.

    b. To the right of the toggle button, you can use the drop down menu to sort by relevance or age of thread.

    c. On the left side of the results page, you can use the filter list to narrow your search further. See the chart at the end of this post for details.
