Manual and automatic search-zone update

Search databases can be updated both manually and automatically.

To update a search zone manually:

  1. On the Options menu, select Manage Search Zones.
  2. In the Index Manager window that appears, select the search zone to be updated.
  3. Click on the Update button.
  4. Monitor the update process in the Update window that appears.
To update a search zone automatically:
  1. On the Options menu, select Manage Search Zones.
  2. In the Index Manager window that appears, select the search zone to be updated.
  3. Click on the Properties button.
  4. In the Properties window that appears, click on the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Index option section, specify the update schedule - the Scheduler value - period of time, after which the program must automatically update the search zone database: click on the Scheduler drop-down menu, and then select the schedule from the drop-down list that appears.
  6. Click OK to continue or Cancel to cancel the action.
When the update time is reached, the program will perform the scheduled update automatically.

The search schedule parameter may have one of the following values:
  • Only manual updates - the search database will be updated on user's demand only; no automatic updates will be performed.
  • Update every day - the search database will be automatically updated on the daily basis.
  • Update every 3 days - the search database will be automatically updated every three days.
  • Update every 7 days - the search database will be automatically updated every seven days.
  • Update every 15 days - the search database will be automatically updated every two weeks.
  • Update every 30 days - the search database will be automatically updated every month.
Notes:
  • Specify the update schedule carefully: selecting the more frequent update will create the more up-to-date search database and thus generate better search results. However, since the indexing process may take from a few minutes to a few hours, this may cause inconvenience for running other programs on your computer.
  • It is possible to use Instant Document Search with Windows Scheduler. For example you can use it for automatically night updates. IDS path for the Windows Scheduler: {IDS install path}\imanager.exe start
