Search Results

Search Pods are used to show the results of the search when in thumbnail mode, when in table mode they show up as rows in the search result. They will show up for either asset or collection results.

Please notes that some of the functionality depends on having the correct roles in the system

Drag and drop

Search results rows and pods can be dragged so that you can associate them with collections when you have the collections panel open. Collections can be moved or added to other collections, this uses the Alt/Option modifier key to choose which will happen.

Assets can also be versioned by dragging an asset on top of another asset.

Opening Results

Opening a result will open the asset view for asset results or the collections view for collection results.

To opening a result you can either:

  • Double click on the thumbnail
  • Click on the title of the result.

If you wish to open the result in a new browser tab, use CTRL/Command-Click.

Functionality for types of results

Certain types of Pods have extra functionality available:


Video asset search pods will allow you to scrub through the video of the video asset as you run the mouse over it from left to right and back again. This functionality is not enabled for the small thumbnail used in the table view.


Audio asset pods will show the waveform analysis for the audio file when available.

In the thumbnail view the Pod also has a play button for previewing the audio file.


The Pods and search result will show up to four thumbnails of assets or sub-collections contained within the collection.
