You can change the sort order which is used when results are returned to the Outlook Integrated Search of Enterprise Vault.  Normally you get something back like this :

default-search1

You see the dates are in a bit of a random order there.  Most people are used to trying to think of findings things “around” a particular date, so you can change it so that the default sort order is date.

Create or edit webapp.ini on your Enterprise Vault server, in the Enterprise Vault program folder (not a unicode file) and add a line :

DefaultRankResults=-date

The results then look like this :

 default-search2

Much better for most users!

There is a comprehensive list of what you can put for the sort order in the Administrators Guide.  Search in there for webapp.ini, and you’ll see things like size, author, archived date, subject, and so on.
