Search Outlook Journal and Notes items

Postby Dan Selby » Thu Nov 22, 2007 7:59 am

Hi,

I've been trialling X1 Professional, having been using Windows Desktop Search, and really like it - particularly the speed.

However, I *really* miss the ability to search for text in Outlook Journal items (which I use extensively) and Outlook Notes.

I searched the forums and saw that there were a few threads requesting this, some dating back quite some time, but I didn't see any definitive response from a dev or moderator...

...is searching of Outlook Journal and Notes items going to be implemented and, if so, is there a likely timescale?

Thanks.
Dan Selby

Hi Dan,

While it's possible that this functionality may be added to X1 at some point, it is not on the current roadmap.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for your reply. It's pretty disappointing and also seems to be a strange and rather glaring omission, given that other Outlook data is indexed and that Windows Desktop Search has been able to index Outlook Journals and Notes since version 1 (I think - certainly for a long time).

If you could pass this on as a feature request to the devs (if it isn't already known) I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Being quite new to X1 I at first took it for granted that there is Outlook Notes support and was indeed very astonished that Notes are not indexed and searched. I'm using them quite heavily so I hope that support for searching Notes will be added soon.

As a new user of X1, I am stunned that it doesn't index Journal items. I use the heck out of the Journal, creating an entry for all my meetings and other notes. Fast search across email is nice, but that's only half the story for my life!

Please add this to the feature list!
