Home Page > Search > Categories



Categories are used to differentiate between project-related files and various types of non-project files. Some examples may be "Projects", "Reference" and "Staff".

Category Search Dropdown

The category dropdown enables you to quickly refine your search within one or more categories. Simply click the categories filter attached to the search bar, this will expand the filter, then click on the categories you wish to select. You have the added option to quickly select 'All categories' at the top of the drop down menu.

The default search option is 'All categories', but OpenAsset Administrators can set the default search category within the Default User Preferences section. Every time a user alters the filter that selection will become the new default for future searches.


Note: Users will only be able to search within categories that they have permission to access. Category permissions are established in group settings.
