To activate the advanced search, click Advanced to the right of the search window. This will bring up the advanced search dialog. From here, you can build advanced search queries with one or many terms. The match conditions option allows you to specify whether you want your search to return assets that match all or any of the search queries. Use the plus or minus icons to add or remove queries from your search. To search the entire library, not just your current location within the job tree, check the box titled Search entire library below the search queries.

Smart Search

We've added to our advanced search options the ability to search ratings by which user made them and during what date range. This adds an additional level of focus to your searches, allowing you to see specifics such as, "show me every kill made by [this user]" or “show me every asset selected between [this date range].”

To use these new options, within Advanced Search and the * categories above are the following icons:


These let you select a user and/or a date to add to your search parameters.

Begin typing a name to select a user:

Choose your date range search terms:

  • None
  • Today, This Week, This Month, or This Year
  • Last "_____" Number of Days
  • Date Range (date picker)

For more information on how to use these options, CLICK HERE to see our Smart Search blog post.
