Conveniently access your OneDrive for Business content from any one of the Qorus Add-ins for Office 365, and re-use your best content in your documents, emails and presentations.
Since Qorus automatically connects to OneDrive for Business, there should be no setup required. If however you need to setup OneDrive for Business manually as a content source, click here for the steps.
With Qorus, you can search your own OneDrive for Business content, as well as files that have been shared with you by another OneDrive for Business user.
In this article, we'll explain how to:
- Select OneDrive for Business as your search location
- Use the search box, with predictive search suggestions and auto-search options
- Target the search at a specific folder
- Use Keywords to improve the search
- Limit results to specific file types
1. SELECT ONEDRIVE FOR BUSINESS AS YOUR SEARCH LOCATION
To get started, the first thing you'll need to do is select 'OneDrive' from the list of content sources connected to Qorus.
2. USING THE SEARCH BOX
Typing a search term or a search phrase into the Search Box is usually where most people start when looking for content - and that's perfectly fine. There are however a few tips and tricks with using the search box provided by the Qorus Add-ins, that can help you find the right content quicker.
- Automatically filling in the search box with selected text
- Automatically executing a search based on selected text
- Predictive Search Suggestion functionality
- Advanced Search options for Power Users
- Automatically fill the search box with selected text
By default, when you select text within a document, email or presentation, we'll pop your selection into the search box. This saves you from having to type out a search term.
- Automatically execute a search based on selected text
If you'd like Qorus to not only fill the search box with your selected text, but also execute the search immediately, you can turn the 'Auto Search from Selection' option on.
- Predictive Search Suggestions
As you type in the search box, Qorus intelligently predicts the best performing search term related to your current search. A 'best performing search term' can be defined as a search term that was used to find useful content, that was inserted into an email, document or presentation using Qorus.
To use the suggested search term, simply click on it to auto-complete your search and find the right content faster.
- Advanced Search options for Power Users
If you're a power user, you might be pleased to know that Qorus supports the use of operators as well as Microsoft's KQL for more advanced search queries. To learn more about this, click here.
3. TARGET THE SEARCH AT A SPECIFIC FOLDER

First, click on the Target header to expand it (1), then drill into the library and/or folder hierarchy (2):
To target the search to a particular location, click on the name of the folder or library (1). You'll notice that the place you're targeting will be displayed next to the Target header.
Please note that you can only select one Target location at a time. Selecting a folder will result in that folder, as well as all of its sub-folders, being included in the search scope:
4. USE ONE OR MORE KEYWORDS TO IMPROVE THE SEARCH
If keywords have been defined in the Qorus Management Portal, then you can select one or more keywords to help improve your search.
First, click on the Keywords header to view the keyword groups associated with the source of content you're searching (1):
Please note: Since keywords are optional, and entirely custom, you may not have any defined at all, or yours might look very different to the keywords in the above screenshot.
To include a keyword in your search, simply click on the keywords to select them (see screenshot below). You may select multiple keywords, and each keyword you select will be displayed in the Keywords header bar:
5. LIMIT RESULTS TO SPECIFIED FILE TYPES
