Is there a way to include categories as a parameter to search documents by?
- Do you mean as filters / facets in Alfresco search ? AFAIK, there is not possible yet. You can use tag as facet, but it is not the case for categories. You may define an aspect with some properties (as year, country, language - better fits in the case that the corresponding categories are not hierarquical). Then, and once "categorized", you may improve your search with these filters.
- If your searches are somehow static, you can use virtual folders too.
- In Advanced Search, you may configure Alresco forms, including categories component for your custom or default content types.
- Finally, some dashlets plugins may help to pre-configure a query with multiple categories:
