Included in the AEC Add-on package, Egnyte’s search tool makes it possible to search for DWG files within your folder structure.

Default Search

Entering a term like "fire sprinkler" will return results that contain that term, like “fire sprinkler system” or “fire-sprinkler-plan" in the Content/Description column of the search results screen.

It will will also return results that have the search term in the file name, such as "FS-101-Level1-Fire-Sprinkler.dwg".

Search Filters

In addition to a number of possible search filters described in Search for Files and Folders in the Web UI, users can limit their search results to only contain DWG files.

Select Any type ↓ and then CAD so all other file types will be excluded from your results.
