Finding projects, folders, and assets on the Explore page

Use any of the following methods to find your projects, folders, and assets on the

page:
  • Explore by projects and folders. View all projects or select a particular project.
  • Explore by asset types. View all assets or view assets of a particular type.
  • Explore by tags. View assets associated with a particular tag.
  • Search for projects or assets. To search all projects, folders, and assets in the organization, view the
    Explore
    page by
    All Projects
    , and then enter a name or description in the Find box. Or, to narrow your search, view the
    Explore
    page by
    All Assets
    , select a specific asset type, project, or folder, and then enter a name or description in the Find box.
  • Sort the search results. Sort the
    Explore
    page by name, last update date, description, or type. When you sort by type, the
    Explore
    page groups assets by asset type. It does not list the asset types in alphabetical order.
  • Filter the objects on the page. To filter objects, click the
    Filter
    icon. To apply a filter, click
    Add Field
    , select the property to filter by, and then enter the property value. The filters available depend on how you view the page. You can specify multiple filters.
    For example, to find all the assets in your organization with the tag SW Region, view the
    Explore
    page by
    All Assets
    and then click the
    Filter
    icon. Add the
    Tags
    filter and enter "SW Region."
You can see projects, folders, and assets for

The
Explore
page does not support the following characters:

Explore
page. To see what actions you can perform on an object, in the row that contains the object, click
Actions
, as shown in the following image:

The Actions menu lists the actions you can perform based on your user role privileges and the permissions specified for the selected object.
