Card usage and activity

Make the most out of search:

  • Check out the extension. In the extension default view, you will be able to see "Recently Viewed" Cards.

  • Keep content concise. If content is bite-sized, it helps both the search results as well as the user's experience.

  • Look at the order. Search results are always sorted by most relevant to least relevant.

  • Remember the files. Guru recognizes and accounts for Guru-hosted files and Google-Drive hosted files in search.

  • Take advantage of tags. Help improve your team's search by using tags.

  • Filter your search. Learn more about how to narrow your search results.
