Looking for a document author in DataGravity search?

I was asked by someone about how to search for a document author, rather then owner.  This is pretty cool in the v2.1 of our DataGravity software.

Check it out:

You can see above that I just typed in:

author “todd barton”

The first file is owned by me. But when we select the file and look at the File Details, we see things are working right.

We see that this Excel file has Todd Barton as the author.  Not owner mind you, but author.  So very handy.

And yes, this discrete feature does require you to enter the search term in lower case. It also depends on the document metadata having an author field with a value we can extract.

BTW, I have a new tag - DGTech - that you can use to find the technical DataGravity articles I do.
