Basic Search

Use the search box located at the top right portion of the screen. 

All assets with the text you added into the search box will be returned. The results with the most relevance (the searched-for text appearing multiple times) will be listed at the top of your search.

A basic text search of the library automatically searches:

  • Added descriptive metadata
  • Embedded IPTC info
  • Folder names
  • The indexed content of all documents (.pdf, .doc, .ppt, .xls, etc.)
  • Tags 
  • Filename 

We also index partial match on the filenames, so build and building will return buildings.jpg. Filenames with hyphens separating the components e.g london-buildings.jpg will also be returned with a search for build or building.

Sorting

Once a search or refinement is made you can also sort your results by:

  • A-Z
  • Z-A
  • Oldest
  • Newest
  • Modified (most recently updated)

Handy tip: you can also search by file format, e.g. search for .pdf and all the .pdf files on the site will be returned

Refinement

You can use the Refine button under the search box to bring back content in the Library by sorting by the different options.
