Searching for your content

Find exactly what you're looking for with powerful search and filter tools.

Hours of digging through folders and sharing email files are a thing of the past. Searching on Air gives you and your team the power to find exactly what you're looking for, right when you need it.

The Basics

Use the search bar to find content from across your entire workspace or within an individual board. You can search by keywords, tags, board names, filenames, workspace members, and any other metadata associated with your images, videos and files.

Searching in a board

When you search from within a board, we only return suggestions and search results that exist within the board you're searching on.

For example, you might want to see just the assets that have been approved for use by the creative team for social media and paid ad channels: to do this, you would search for the term "Approved" to return those assets within the board.

Searching your entire workspace

If you'd like to search across your entire workspace, head to the Library page or when searching a board remove the board title token in the search bar!

Tips and Tricks

  • You can hit command + p from any page to activate the search bar

  • When searching, you can use the keywords AND, OR, and - (minus character before any word) to perform intersection, union, or exclusion searches with multiple queries. NOTE: AND & OR must be used between two words to function.

Examples below: - train AND car (only returns assets that have trains and cars in the metadata) - building OR tree (returns assets that have building or trees in the metadata) - -people (only returns assets without people)

  • Searches are now appended to your URL, so you can refresh your page, use the browser back/forward buttons, or even send links to coworkers with search results.

  • You can easily jump between searching a board vs. the entire workspace by removing the board title token from your search bar. (In the example below the first search only looks inside the "NYC" board, when the board title token is removed it searches the entire library)

Using filters

Filter by file type, import source, date, uploader, keywords, tags, and even color to refine your content further and find exactly what you're looking for! You can use filters in combination with your search or combine filter options together to improve search accuracy.
