  • A unique word from the item description is recommended.
  • You can also search by any other item field (department, vendor, size, color, etc.). The more unique the keyword, the fewer search results will be returned.
  • You can also scan the item’s barcode tag.
  • As you type, the list is instantly filtered to display only matching items. Note how the filter button now indicates the list is showing Search Results and the number of records found is shown at the bottom of the list. In this case, typing “Orange” returned three sports drink items.
