Global Search

In the New Library you can quickly access the Global search by clicking the search icon in the top right corner of the page.


Then, type in your query and hit enter to search the library, or any other modules you have access to like Projects and Presentations.

If your query has multiple words, you can choose the Match all words to ensure the results contain all the search terms.

The results will be split into the various modules where matches are found.

From here you can either click a single asset to view it in Single Asset View, View all in Library/Projects/Presentations or Show More. Clicking the Show More button will expand the list, revealing more results.

Clicking View all in Library will show you all the results in the main library view, with a regular keyword filter{{Filtering}} applied.

All the regular filtering options are then available to you on the left hand side panel, allowing you to refine your search further, or if you'd prefer, you can go back in the browser and your search is retained so you can edit it.

The default setting for Search is Global, meaning all asset metadata will be searched to find a match for your query. 

It is possible to change the setting from Global to a more specific criteria e.g. Title if you only wanted to search for assets with a title matching your query.

In these cases, when you click View all in Library, you will notice that the filter summary pane will no longer show the search result as a keyword, but as "Global Search:Title".

It is possible to add keywords and use other filters at this stage, but you cannot add another search term for the title. For this you would need to go back and start a new search.

Furthermore, when viewing search results for shared assets, you will see an even more limited view. Since different Business Units have different metadata setups, it is not possible to apply filters across multiple BUs.

Therefore, to change the results, you must go back and start a new search.
