Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching for files, part of Up and Running with Box.
…I have less than a dozen files uploaded so far.…When I have ten times as many, or a hundred times as many,…finding a particular file will become more challenging.…And, because I have a structure where I have files and folders,…I have the same issues with this as I have when I have files and folders in Windows.…It's very easy for me to start looking by jumping.…Into the folders and double clicking and saying.…Is the file I want in here, or is it somewhere else.…Don't do any of that.…
I want to encourage you to use the search utility.…That sits right here in box.…So, the first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to look for…any files that have ruin in their name, and I begin typing that and it is looking…only at the names of files as it returns these results that make sense.…Now notice that I have mission here, but it's in the description, and…it doesn't find it.…So we're only looking for name matches.…If I now press Enter, it will load those search results, and it will also give me…some additional tools, some advanced search tools that I can now use to filter.…
