Searching Minutes Documents
To search the archive of minutes documents:
Unfortunately, because we are not using GSuite, searching in public Google Drive folders is not straightforward, but it is possible.
First, you must be using a desktop/laptop browser (i.e., will not work on a smartphone with Google Drive app installed)
Next, in order for Google Drive to be able to search another account's public folders, you have to have viewed the files from your own account. To do this:
In your own Google Drive Account, open the Leeway Overlee Minutes Folder
Open each of the year subfolders that you want to search, and open then close the PDF files stored within
This action will index the document in your personal Google Drive search index
This is tedious, but you only need to do this once. The document will be searchable in the future without having to open/close it again. If new documents are added, you will have to view them in order to search them.
