The tabs SEARCH BY
NAME, SEARCH BY ORGANISATION CHART
and SEARCH BY KEYWORD have
With the search by organisation chart you travel
around in the Commission organisation chart tree. You can go down
to a specific DG. With the icon
you obtain the complete list of a direction or of a DG in regards
to your position in the tree. Use this search mode when you know
at least partly the affectation of the person your are looking for
or when you want informations about an entire DG or unit.
With the search by name, you have at your disposal
some fields to insert your request specifications: name, first name,
administrative adress (building, floor, office, phone number) and
the job description. You can launch a search from several fields
to refine the results.
With the search by keyword, you can launch
a search with one or more keywords following the boolean operators
principle AND and OR.
It's a full text search. It can be completed by the mention of a
DG and / or a direction to refine the search.
on the partial form of a word (only available for organisational
The search can be launched from a complete
word or from the beginning of a word. If you enter for exemple "documentation",
the search will include all the results with the word "documentation"
in the concerned field. If you enter "doc", the search
will include all the words starting with "doc": "documentation",
boolean operators AND and OR
In the SEARCH BY KEYWORD
tab, three fields are available to use the OR
operator and enlarge the search to the records with one of the words
or all the words. So, if you enter the word "secretary"
in the first field, and the word "archives" in the second
field, you will obtain all the results with "secretary",
all the results with "archives" and all the results with
both of these words.
you want to refine your search, you can enter one or two keywords
in the same field on condition that they are separated by the AND
operator. For exemple, a search with the keywords "secretary"
will include only the records where there are both of these words.
can also take advantage of the two types of operators.
The search on blank words with a weak semantic
importance (a, the, le, la, les, he...) has no interest and can
slow down the process by reducing the interest and the precision
of the search.
The capital letters, the small letters,
the accents and the special characters
The search in the Commission Directory
doesn't care about accents and other special characters (cedilla,
spanish tilde, german umlaut, %, & ...). Moreover, the search
doesn't care about the upper-case and lower-case letters.
The results are sorted by DG with the protocol
requirement. The results with two hyperlinks are relative to persons.
The results with only one hyperlink are relative to organisational
