Search a specific folder

Is it possible to search a specific folder in ShareFile?  I see that you can click the magnifying glass at the top to search, but that searches all of our folders.  Is it possible to limit the search to a specific folder?

Hi Ryan,

After you get the search results, on the search page, there should be an option on the right side of the screen to select a specific folder and then apply the search to that.

I totally missed that.  Thanks for pointing it out to me!

Feature request--can Citrix update Sharefile so that the first time you do a search, you have the option to only search things in the current folder?  Searching the entire Sharefile system before having the opportunity to narrow the search to a particular folder is very time consuming, when the user knows exactly what they want to do and the system clearly has the capability already, just doesn't expose the option until after it's undertaken a much more resource-intensive operation.

Thanks

To get around this, I've bookmarked a direct link to the search bar: <mydomain>.sharefile.com/search

You can apply filters to the search from here before it starts the search.

Thanks Erik--that's a great workaround!

I'd still like the feature request to be received, but in the meantime this will be on my bookmarks list too.
