New: Search in Zoho Notebook

General, Zoho Notebook | August 10, 2009 | 1 min read

One of the most requested feature in Zoho Notebook is search. In our recent update, we included the search option. You’ll now be able to search for notebooks, pages and also the content within your notebooks.

Search results are displayed as a tab on the right. When a search keyword is present in a notebook, the results display the notebook name followed by the page name which contains the keyword. Search results also display the author of the book along with the last modified information.

When you click on a search result, the notebook is opened in a new tab with the focus on the page containing the search keyword. Apart from searching across all your notebooks, we also provided an option to search within the current notebook. This is particularly useful for notebooks with multiple pages.

We hope you find this useful.

    What exactly is searchable?I have now started using ZOHO and added a couple HTML pages to my book. I tried to run a search for a particular word I know is in the page (as a test), but no results came up. I added a text box to one of the pages with the word and searched for this word. No results came up either.What exactly does the search operate on? Only page titles and book titles?Great services by the way! 🙂

    This is a HUGE step in the right direction.Now:can we see the search word highlighted on the results page?can we save searches?tag entries?why are the results of copying to Zoho Notebook just images and not editable text? I cannot copy & paste selected text. I have to copy/paste a separate text entry by hand. VERY FRUSTRATING.David

    Excellent!, this tool has been so useful to make corporate presentations and to keep a traking about some point of interest and share with others.

    Yeah! The feature that stopped me from using Zoho Notebook more frequently. Will mess around with it this afternoon. Now if the Notebook can be used offline and automatically sync when online (aka Evernote) that would be great.
