Community Search

Have a PTC product question you need answered fast? Chances are someone has asked it before, so make sure to familiarize yourself with the community search.

 

To search the community, you can click the search icon in the header on any community page.

This will open a search bar in the header. By default, that search will be scoped to the board or category you are on, but you have the option to change the scope of your search in the dropdown on the left of the search bar. You can search the current board, the current category or the entire community. You can also search for community members or knowledge articles. (This is not to be confused with the PTC knowledge base. Searching knowledge on the community will take you to our "Tips" boards.)

When you start typing your search you will immediately see some suggestions. If you see what you are looking for that's great, but if you don't, when you press enter you will be taken to a search page which has additional search options. For example, you could limit your search to only return questions with solutions, or limit results to tips by a specific author.

The community search can help you quickly find existing topics, but you can also subscribe to a search term and receive a notification whenever a new post matches your search.
