Introduction to this page

Facets are a simple, visual way of seeing and browsing possible groupings of files in a pane.

Facets will appear in a carousel layout at the top of any pane that contains only files.

Good to know: You can turn facets on or off for all spaces (see below).


How facets work:

Each facet displays a characteristic common to any two or more files in that pane. The facets can come from the current view, or any sub-folders. The number of files that share common characteristics in these fields are shown as numbers in the top right-hand corner of each facet. For example, if the keyword "Nature Division" is found on three files, you will see a facet for "Nature Division" with the number three next to it (see below). Clicking on a facet opens that set of three files directly.

Note that if there are no metadata fields common to more than one file, or if all of the files have the save metadata, there are no facets displayed.



By default, facets will show a combination of all types of metadata fields for common characteristics. This mode is the "Smart" mode, which usually provides helpful facets by using metadata that is common to most of the files in the pane.

View facets according to a specific metadata field

1. Click on the Facet selector at the right-hand side of the facets carousel. A facets menu will open. 

2. See the number of files that share characteristics for each field displayed against them. 

3. Click on a field in the menu to show the facets that are specific to that metadata field. 

Turn facets on or off

1. Click the eye symbol at the top right-hand corner of an active pane.
