Atomic Search for Canvas
Atomic Search makes it possible for you to search the full text of your course content quickly and easily from any page inside of Canvas. Instructure announced they won't be implementing Global Search in 2018 which means that for now, Atomic Search is the exclusive way for administrators, teachers, and students to efficiently search their Canvas content! We’d call that pretty show stopping.
Atomic Search allows you to search the full text of your course content similar to how you use Google to search the web. It adds a search box to the top right of each page in Canvas which makes it super easy to quickly search whenever you need to. Atomic Search lets you search Canvas pages, files, external pages, assignments, quizzes, announcements and other content. You can use keyword, wildcard, and phrase searches and filter search results based on type of content, course term, and sub-account.
We recently completed an integration with Canvas Live Events. This means that Canvas notifies Atomic Search when changes are made to Canvas pages or other content so it can update its index in real-time. That means you can search for the updated content immediately.
Atomic Search supports most major languages. That means that Canvas users everywhere can enjoy this product!
