Question from Jason: Is refine results available in WC 11.1 M020?
Answer: Yes, use this link for information on Faceted Search Results - https://support.ptc.com/help/wnc/r126.96.36.199/en/index.html#page/Windchill_Help_Center/LclSrchResultsFacets.html
Question from Lars: How do I get "refine results" on the left side of the search window?
Answer: It should be there by default depending on the type of objects and combination of objects that you search. It constructs that faceted search list based on common attributes in the results of the object types.
Question from Mark: Just curious - is Windchill written in HTML and that's why Donna is running it in Chrome?
Answer: Windchill is web based and can be run in any of the standard browsers.
Question from Wayne: Is there a way to define the default global search criteria? For example, if I want to only search for Creo CAD Documents.
Answer: Yes the user just needs to select CAD as the object to search. A saved search could also be established if the criterial is not too restricting.
