Global Search

Runner's search engine uses asset metadata to return search results based on user's search criteria.

Step 1

Enter a filename in the search bar. Assets returned will be displayed based on user's search criteria and sorted by relevance.

Pencil.jpg Note: For some assets, you will see a UR icon.png icon. This indicates that there is a Usage Restriction on the asset. For more information, see the Usage Restriction page.

Click QuestionMarkIcon.png in the search bar to find hints on how to search for assets.

Pencil.jpg Note: If you do a specific search such as 'TBR-100_20160411-VS_1146.JPG' there’s a high probability the results set will be much smaller.

Lightbulb14.jpg Quick Tip: Runner search operates like a relevance engine rather than an exact match tool. For example, if you search 'Blacklist,' the top result will be the asset that displays the word 'Blacklist' the most times in the asset's metadata (filename, metadata, description, etc).

Step 2

Your search can be further refined through the Filters side menu where you can select different metadata-based terms to drill down your search. By default, the Filters menu is expanded, but the menu can be minimized to a tab.

After clicking on the TagIcon.png icon, the filter drawer will toggle to the metadata drawer.

Step 4

To switch back to the filters drawer, click on the FilterToggle.png icon in the upper left hand corner of the drawer which changes the metadata drawer back to the filters drawer.

Pencil.jpg Note: The TagsIcon.png icon shows that the asset is still selected and allows you to toggle between the filter and metadata drawer to view that asset's details. By deselecting the TagsIcon.png icon, you're disabling the metadata drawer.

Step 5

When there is no TagIcon.png icon selected on an asset, the metadata drawer is disabled and you're only able to view the filters drawer.
