Searching by file type in Web UI

Jump to solution

Is there any current support to search by file type in the web interface? If not, are there plans to implement such a feature?

For example, it would be helpful to search for a term and get a list of all PowerPoint presentations on the topic, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Sam,

Searching on Egnyte can be carried out using various different parameters. There are few things to be kept in mind while searching the files on the UI. It could be a lengthy reply if I start to type. But I would encourage you to read through the following KB article on Search.

To answer your question, yes you can search by file type on the UI. Searching for .docx or .pptx etc keywords in the search box will return all the files with this extension for you. I have personally tried it on my domain. 

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Sagar.
