The Quick Filter Folder is a special folder that contains files matching a given criteria.

For example, it can contain all the files that have the letter "b" in their names or sort by file type.It can be created in the File manager.

The File quick filter window will appear:

  • Name*: you must provide a name for your quick filter folder in order to save it.
  • Folder to filter in:/: when you click on the "Show explorer" a section will appear (see picture below) where you can select which folder you want to use for filtering. Subfolders (if applicable) will also be listed.
  • Search in child folders as well: With your main (parent) folder selected, you create a new (child) folder inside of it, all the files in this new folder will be filtered
  • Has tags: Allows you to enter tags separated by commas for filtering
  • Valid files only: If switched on the folder will contain all the valid files
  • Are files valid by default: If switched on, files that do not have validity will be handled as valid, and will be gathered into the quick filter folder
  • Restrict filter input by teams: Only those files will be filtered out which is available for the selected teams
  • Restrict resulting folder to teams: Only the selected teams will see the filter folder in the file manager
