Auto-narrowing Your Searches (Smart Searches)

This feature makes searching more logical.  This is done by repopulating the search combo fields or search tree with values that exist in the current results, as if the search was actually executed.  As you select search values, queries determine the values that exist for the other fields you have not search against yet so you are only left with choices that will yield results to the search you may next attempt.

Because this option runs several queries to determine what the eligible values for the other search fields are, there may be a delay as Docs2Manage runs these queries.  If your database is rather large and this delay becomes too long, this option should be turned off.

NOTE: If database performance becomes slow in general, ask your database administrator if your heavily searched fields are indexed.  ..
