This screen appears when you open your results in view, and it includes features to help you work with documents. For example, you may:

  • Print, email or download the document
  • Edit the search

Note: When you are viewing the results of a group alert, not all features are available.

You may change the results display by selecting one of the following view formats from the View drop-down list. For more information about view formats, see View Formats.

  • List -- Displays document names in a numbered list. It also displays basic information about the documents such as .

  • Expanded List -- Displays the same information as in List View for each document, along with your search terms in context.

  • -- Displays the complete text of the documents your search found.

  • Custom -- The Custom option is the same as the option, except that it allows you to specify the document information that you want to view. When you select Custom for the first time after retrieving a new set of results, the system prompts you for the document sections that you want to include in your view. After you have created a custom view, you can change it by clicking the "Modify" link that appears next to the View drop-down list.

    Note: The custom view that you create is retained if you search within results or perform a "more like this" search, or if you deliver documents from the current results set. However, the custom view will be reset after your next search.

    The Custom option may not be available, depending on the sources included in your search.

  • KWIC™ -- Displays each document individually with your search terms highlighted and surrounded by a window of 25 words. This option is not available for all sources.
