Question: Can the search engine default to "ignore max results limits"?

Answer:   Unfortunately, no.

 

Question: Do you have any suggestions for Best Practices relating to naming contract workspaces?  What do the best-in-class Ariba users use to name their workspaces?

Answer: Many customers like incorporating the Supplier name, date, and type of contract.

 

Question: Are there any plans to have a back button or "last result" choice added to this area.  When you navigate away from here, alot of of times you have to rerun the search.  Having to go to my saved searches is also time consuming.

Answer: There are no plans for such a button in the pipeline that I am aware of but please feel free to log an enhancement request for this feature.  I will say that if you exit the search, the text field search options shall remain populated with the last string you typed.

 

Question: can you export custom fields to excel

Answer: Yes, but you may need to first log an SR with customer support to flag the fields that you want to be available in the tree view of the search results.
