Search Page

The search page is a central point to access all kinds of information about your documents, see search results, refinements or the underlying knowledge graph's representation.

Search Page Sections and Their Meaning Explained

The search page consists of search results, knowledge graph, refinements and suggestions.

Search Results

Include your search items such as documents, folders and websites. Each of them contains a name that serves as a link to download those documents (or to view a folder, if the result is a folder).

You can also click Show Parent to see where the document is stored.

Search results may contain tags that are not clickable, unwanted tags are hidden.

Knowledge Graph

This section displays basic information about selected concepts. It helps you to improve your search results.

Knowledge Graph is displayed only when you pick an item from suggestions


These help you specify the search term by applying additional logical criteria. The results are recalculated from the displayed results from the main window.

The section consists of three main parts - broader concepts, concepts and concept schemes. You can rearrange the order in which they appear, in PowerTagging Admin Tools, section Search Settings.

  • Broader Concepts contains broader concepts of every tag that appears in search results.
  • Concept Schemes cover many subconcepts, starting at level of your search term. 
  • Concepts are individual concepts that you can use to specify or add to your search.

Numbers that appear next to refiners, are the count of appropriate tags that appear in search results.

  • This means, Broader Concepts and Concept Schemes can display numbers that are larger than the total count of documents.
  • Concepts will display numbers corresponding with the number of documents that you will get after applying the refiner.
    • You can not have two tags that are the same for one document, so the number of tags equals the number of documents.

If you don't see the refinements, you either don't have tagged documents or you haven't allowed this option in the settings.


Shows the individual concepts in the project and gives you a choice of similar terms. It works after you start typing (enter at least 3 characters).

To the left of the search field, a drop down menu allows you to limit the projects you want to work with (1), as search terms may be included in multiple projects.

When you select an item from suggestions, PowerSearch looks for appropriate tag. Otherwise, anything written into search field is a plain text search query.

Name of project

Informs you about the selected project.

Preferred label

Unique main name of the search term.

Alternative labels

Terms similar to your searched term.

Broader concepts

Broader semantic category that your term belongs to. Closest level above your searched term in the PoolParty project tree. To be able to search, you need to have a project that already contains some tagged documents.

Proper searching is available only after the SharePoint has indexed documents.
