Updating database indexes and views

A view index is an internal filing system that Notes® uses to build the list of documents to display in a database view or folder.

View indexes should be kept up-to-date so that information in views and folders stays synchronized with document updates. You can also manage view indexes by purging or deleting them to improve database performance.

A full-text index is an index of the text in a database. To perform advanced searches for text in a database, users need an up-to-date full-text index that reflects the latest content of a database.

You can use any of these methods to update database indexes:

  • The Update task
  • The Updall task
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • The Database Properties box
