Boolean Searches

To give users full flexibility, our Candidate and Job Match products allow users to specify Boolean searches. Our product uses ElasticSearch simple query string syntax to give you the power to make complex custom searches that fit your need.

While this type of search is most typically used for the 'Keyword' category by users, the same syntax can be applied across all of our other search categories.
