You can find articles by searching and by browsing.


Search for Articles


On the Home Page or a Product Overview Page

Click in the search box. Then enter your search terms. The search will include all articles in the selected space.

  • If you are on the Help Central home page, the search includes the entire site.
  • If you are on a product overview page, the search includes only the articles for that product.



On Other Pages

If you are not on the home page, look for the magnifying glass icon at the top of the page. Click the icon, and then enter your search terms. If you want to restrict the results to only the currently selected product space, click the link at the top of the list.




  • Phrases: To find a phrase, enclose it in quotes. For example, to find articles about caller ID, enter: "caller ID"
    If you omit the quotes, the search tool will find articles containing the word caller as well as all articles containing the term ID.
  • Wildcard: You can use an asterisk as a wildcard character. For example, enter messag*  to find articles containing message and messaging.
    Note that a wildcard cannot be used at the beginning of a word, and it can't be used as a standalone word.


  • Logical operators: You can use the operators below to create logical expressions in your searches. Enter these terms in ALL CAPS to distinguish them from normal words.
    • AND: Returns content containing the two search terms that are joined by the operator.
    • ODER: Returns content containing either one of the search terms.
    • NOT: Excludes content that contains the search term after the NOT. The NOT operator can only be applied to simple terms, not compound sub-queries, and it cannot be used inside a sub-query.
  • For more tips, click the Search Tips link below the search box.
