There is a Microsoft Office bug (2019105) that will attempt WebDAV windows authentication from non WebDAV links. To work around this bug the server can specify the "Content-Disposition" header as an "attachment" (requesting the browser save the file instead of opening it). Microsoft Internet Explorer will still ask if you want to open the file but will not attempt WebDAV. When making links with ShowItemData.po use the "download" in place of the "filename" parameter. For example:

/ShowItemData.po?handle=123&download=file.ext

The Search Bar gives Noodle users the power to quickly and conveniently locate Noodle content.

In the following example, the user has decided to search using the search text 'Accounting'. Noodle will now present the user a list of all matches based on the search criteria given:

The user may now click one of the links shown to be taken to the information page for that file. Any results that are contained in a folder will direct a user to the information page - others such as emails and forum posts, the user will be taken directly to them.search
