Sneak Peek: List Search Web Parts for SharePoint 2013

Available now for SharePoint 2007 and 2010 and coming soon to SharePoint 2013, Bamboo’s List Search Web Parts are powerful tools that streamline list searching to make search results more relevant for the end user, as well as presenting a simple, straightforward search interface for a single list without confusing field lists. Provide functionality beyond the basic search capabilities of SharePoint allowing users to modify the scope of the search as well as providing AND/OR operator functions.

The List Search Simple Web Part allows you to configure the Web Part so that end users can quickly search a preconfigured list using preconfigured search criteria. The end user only enters in search criteria and views the search results. In the Web Part properties:

  • Select which list you want to search and the specific fields from the list that you want to search with;
  • Indicate that the search is always an And search or an OR search;
  • Select which List view you want to use to display the search results;
  • Select whether you keep the search criteria on the same page with the search results;
  • Allow users to select default values in search fields;
  • Allow users to print the search results;
  • Allow users to perform a key word search in all list columns;
  • Translate the Web Part user interface to French, Spanish, German, or English, or customize the translation to a language of your choice; and
  • Customize the look and feel of the Web Part user interface modifying the HTML source code and Web Part CSS.

The List Search Advanced Web Part enables you to allow end users more control over their search options. The end user can select the list to search and the list view for displaying search results, use Boolean operators to narrow the information in the search results, and group search criteria. You can configure the Web Part to:

  • Specify a set of lists to be available for the user to select from for searching;
  • Search within a List Rollup data view, created a Bamboo List Rollup Web Part;
  • Keep the search criteria on the same page with the search results;
  • Allow users to print the search results;
  • Disable lookup fields to control Web Part performance; and
  • Translate the Web Part user interface to French, Spanish, German, or English, or customize the translation to a language of your choice.


List Search Simple Web Part and List Search Advanced Web Part are currently available for users of SharePoint 2010 and 2007 and, as applicable, we invite you to take advantage of a free 30-day trial download to evaluate the product within your SharePoint environment in advance of the availability of the 2013 version.
