This article will explain how to search for items or content in your GatherContent account.

You can search from two places:

From the project dashboard

  1. Head to the project dashboard and find the search bar in the top right-hand corner.
  2. Type the item name you're looking for and select the item. This will take you to the item.

You'll see any item names that match your search criteria first in the list, and any matches inside the content below.

Tip: The ability to search for the content within items is a paid feature. This is available to accounts on the Pro Plan and above. If you'd like this feature enabled on your account, you can upgrade your plan.

From within a project

  1. Inside a project, find the search bar in the top right-hand corner of the main navigation.
  2. Type the item name you're looking for and select the item. This will take you to the item. 

Tip:  Searching within a project will automatically search for items within the project you're currently in. If you switch the toggle, you can change to search within all projects.

You can also use the filter box on the Content tab to find items inside this project only.

Click into the filter box and type the name of the item or user you're looking for. You can then select the item you would like to open.

You can filter by:

  • Item names
  • User names (assignees)
  • Due dates as listed in the 'Due date column
  • Template names

Tip: This search box does not search the content inside items. To search the content inside items, see here.

You can also use the workflow filter to show items within a particular workflow status.
