Issue: Microsoft Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8 all include an integrated search engine that allows for the indexing of local files. However, the default settings do not include the sub-folders of %localappdata% in the search index. The default installation settings of Colligo Contributor caches the SharePoint files locally in subfolders of this location.
To include locally cached SharePoint content in the search index:
- Go to %systemdrive%\Users\%username%\Appdata\Local\ColligoOfflineClient.
- Right click the Storage5 folder.
- Go to Properties > General Tab > Advanced.
- Check the Index this folder for faster searching box.
- Click Apply.
Depending on your system configuration, locally cached files will display in your search results after a short period of time.
It is also possible to apply indexing to the AppData folder and sub-folders. However, we do not recommend this due to the number of undesirable files that can be included in the index.
You can also change the default storage location of Colligo to a location already indexed by Windows (e.g: My Documents). It is possible to change the storage location from the menu View > Options in the Colligo interface.
