A normal search will be a global search; anything in the files that is related to what was searched will be displayed. This can be file names, descriptions, tags, keywords, folder names, etc.

The Advanced Search options enables users to search for assets by entering values for specific attributes:

  • Search below folder only – narrow your search to items contained in your current folder and below.
  • Find expired assets only – narrow your search to expired items only.
  • Find files with label – narrow your search to specific labels only.
  • Limit search by changed date – narrow your search to a specific time frame.

Press Search to execute the search.

The Search results page shows you a list of all the items that have been found from your search query.

You can click on the Gallery  icon to toggle between Gallery View and List View.

To go to a specific search entry, just click on the item in the search results, and you will be directed to this item. Click the browser back button  to go back to the Search results page.

Downloading etc. from search results

From the Search Results list you can download a file by clicking at the Context menu  icon and select  Download.

If you want to download multiple items you can click on the Bulk action  icon in the header menu and choose  Download. Now select all the files and folders you want to download from the search results. Then press Download. A .zip archive will now be created and the download process will begin.

You can also share, view info, change label, comment, move, copy, add to collection, and delete files directly from the Search Results page.

Notice: You will only be able to search the files and folders you have been granted access to. So don't worry; your customers won't see files from folders they do not have access to in the search results.
Tip: When using Limit search by changed date notice that "From date" and "To date" cannot be the same date.

Boolean Search

Boolean search lets users identify as asset based on a true or false (binary) basis, allowing you to specify exactly what information you want to retrieve using the terms “and,” “or,” and “not.” Boolean search logic comes in especially handy when you’re conducting a search against a very large collection of assets.
