Community Release - Search Improvements

Average Rating:

What's a release?

Simply put, a release is a package of software updates consisting of new features and bug fixes that are ready to deploy. On CCL Community, we release updates every other week, but given the importance and priority of improving search we wanted to send a special release update.

Community’s Search feature has been updated! We added a lightning fast, powerful and highly customizable search program to replace the out of the box search software. We’ve improved the user interface and made it much easier for users to find the most relevant content.


Searching Community

Start trying it out by typing in the keyword(s) for what you’re looking into the search bar on the right side of the menu toolbar (shown in green above) or simply click the blue magnifying glass icon. You will be directed to the search results page.


  • Searches almost all pages of Community and displays them together in one results page (resources, training, groups, tools, forms, and bulletins). 
  • Prioritizes the most important pages up top to help you locate what matters most


  • The main search page doesn’t search through individual community usernames or the forums in its results. If you're looking for a member, search the member directory. If you're looking for sitewide forums or discussion posts, search the forums
  • If you search using a keyword to find something and it doesn’t turn up in the results, let us know in the Bug Reports forum.

I would like to know of Catholic action group members in the NYC area.  Does this search function help me here?

Thanks Steven Coleman‍ - unfortunately until action teams have their own rosters (something the IT team continues to work towards), the best way to search your team's membership by specific state is to go to the "Members" tab of your team: and then search for "NY" in the state field listed. You can also search the Member Directory: for keywords like "Catholic" to see who comes up and what state they're listed under!
