Search & Find Your TeamGram Records

TeamGram has a built-in search engine that instantly indexes everything you store in it. To find a record, simply type the words you are looking for in the search box at the top.

TeamGram uses the wildly-used elasticsearch engine. Therefore you can use the search methodologies you use in all search engines, including Google.

Note that TeamGram looks for exact matches by default. If you are looking for variant words, use the wildcard character: (asterisk)
