Spotlight Series #7 - Instantly locate your files and folders

Spotlight Series #7 - Instantly locate your files and folders

Hello everyone!

We're back again to highlight another feature in our Zoho WorkDrive spotlight series

No matter how organized your system, sometimes remembering where precisely you stored a file can be difficult. With Zoho WorkDrive, you don't need to manually search through a long list of files and folders to locate what you're looking for. 

If you know a file or folder's name, the author's name, or even a keyword inside the file, you can simply search using this information, and apply filters to further narrow down your search results. 

Say you know just a keyword inside but not the file's name, the advanced search is a quick and convenient way of locating what you need without having to browse through all your folders. This can save you a lot of time when working on a range of projects.

All Location: Filter results based on their location, whether My Folders, Shared with Me, and Team Folders. To choose a Team Folder, select the team first, then select a team folder in it.
All File Types: Filter results based on folders and file type, such as documents, spreadsheets, presentations, images, videos, or any others.
All Dates: Filter results based on the date filters, such as Today, Yesterday, Last 7 Days, Last Month, or set a custom date.

Here's what is included in all unfiltered results:

1. Files with content matching with the entire keyword will be listed. These results won't be shown as matches when you type keywords in the search bar.

2. All text documents, presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, or text files (including zip files) with any keyword match in their content will be included.

3. Team Folders will not be listed.
WorkDrive organizes your search results based on its relevancy score compared to all other results.
We hope this post helps you understand how to instantly locate your files and folders using WorkDrive's search feature.
