The Advanced Search page can be accessed by clicking on the link on the quick search or by selecting 'Advanced Search' from the left-hand menu.
This page allows you to create a more complex search term in order to narrow down the number of results that will be displayed.
Whilst the default for Asset Bank is to search both attributes and file content, there is also an option to search in either attributes only (i.e. metadata entered in Asset Bank) or file content only (i.e. the words within PDF files, DOCX files, etc.).
Attributes such as dropdowns, optionlists and checklists will have an '[empty]' option to find assets for which this attribute has not been set. To run a search for text attributes that are empty simply use the string 'isempty'.
When searching in a folder you will have the option to also include sub-folders which will be ticked by default. There is also an option to choose whether an asset must be in any or all of the selected folders to be returned in the search.
If you are searching across multiple attributes, the default behaviour is to show assets matching all of the attribute criteria but there is an option to show assets matching any of the attribute criteria.
