Boolean searching is a powerful tool that enables users to combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR to further produce more relevant results. For example, a Boolean search could be "Apple" AND "bluetooth". This would limit the search results to only those documents containing the two keywords.
Unified's PTAB Portal supports the use of Boolean identifiers when conducting a full-text search. To begin a new search, go to the Portal and select Case List from the left-hand navigation menu. The full-text search bar will appear in the "PTAB Search" filter options.
The following list is provides a quick reference of how to conduct Boolean search operations in Unified's Portal platform:
|+ or <space>||AND|
|" "||exact phrase|
|( )||groups search terms or operations|
