Searching With a Browser on a Mobile Device Using the Legacy .NET Front-End Search

You can use the browser of your smartphone to access the mobile version of the Coveo .NET Front-End search interfaces deployed by your Coveo administrator for your organization (see .NET Interface Editor - Search Interfaces Tab). The Coveo .NET Front-End server automatically detects that you are using a small screen mobile device and returns results using the mobile search interface, optimized for small screens.

Note: Consider rather using the mobile version of the newer Coveo JavaScript Search (see Searching With a Browser on a Mobile Device Using the Coveo JavaScript Search).

Note: The Coveo Platform returns results using the standard search interface for tablets mobile devices such as the iPad.

To search with a browser on a mobile device using the legacy .NET Front-End search

  1. On your mobile device, start the web browser.

  2. In the address bar, enter the URL for the Coveo search site of your organization. This address is most probably the same address as the one you use when you access the Coveo search from a computer.

    Example: https://CoveoSearch.organization.com

  3. When you connect to a secure server (HTTPS), enter your username and password for the site.

  4. Launch a search as described in the following example.

    Select the search interface in which you want to search.
    Enter search terms.
    Select Search.

Note: By default, when you will click on a search result title, the copy of the original document (stored in the Coveo index) will open. Your Coveo administration can configure the search result to rather open the original document (see Opening the Original Document Associated with a Mobile Search Result).
