Resource Resumes

A resource is more than a name in a database. There is lots of metadata that you may want to associate with them. Like their resume, photo, certifications, diplomas, and more. This is useful for painting an entire picture of your resource. With this metadata in hand you can find and assign the appropriate resources to roles. This is extremely useful if you manage a large organization and don't know every person's history by heart. You can upload any type of document. In addition, you can create links to jump to your own website like Sharepoint, LinkedIn, etc.

Search Nomenclature

The below table explains some of the advanced search functionality Projector supports.

Natural SearchA natural language search request is any combination of words, phrases, or sentences. After a natural language search, dtSearch sorts retrieved documents by their relevance to your search request. Weighting of retrieved documents takes into account: the number of documents each word in your search request appears in (the more documents a word appears in, the less useful it is in distinguishing relevant from irrelevant documents); the number of times each word in the request appears in the documents; and the density of hits in each document. Noise words and search connectors like NOT and OR are ignored.
StemmingStemming extends a search to cover grammatical variations on a word. For example, a search for fish would also find fishing. A search for applied would also find applyingapplies, and apply. There are two ways to add stemming to your searches:
  1. If you want to add stemming selectively, add a ~ at the end of words that you want stemmed in a search. Example: apply

apple and pear

Both words must be present

apple or pear

Either word can be present

apple w/5 pear

Apple must occur within 5 words of pear

apple not w/5 pear

Apple must not occur within 5 words of pear

apple and not pear

Only apple must be present

name contains smith

The field name must contain smith


Matches any single character. Example: appl? matches apply or apple.


Matches any number of characters. Example: appl* matches application


Stemming. Example: apply~ matches applyappliesapplied.


Fuzzy search. Example: ba%nana matches bananabananna.


Phonic search. Example: #smith matches smithsmythe.


Synonym search. Example: fast& matches quick.


Numeric range. Example: 12~~24 matches 18.


Variable term weighting. Example: apple:4 w/5 pear:1
