Group & sort files
Project members with Can Manage or Can Collaborate roles use the landing page of a project’s Files view, which shows all of its files as file thumbnails. Here’s an example:
Each thumbnail shows the file’s type (photo or video icon in lower left), name, date & time taken, number of tag instances, and number of comments:
| Ex. Photo thumbnail
|Taken:||Apr 28, 2016, 03:31 PM|
|Number of tag instances:||16|
|Number of comments:||0|
| Ex. Video thumbnail
|Taken:||May 01, 2015, 10:03AM|
|Number of tag instances:||4|
|Number of comments:||5|
- The number of SmartTags the file has is shown in the orange circle on the top left thumbnail number. The number of tags total, including manual tags, is shown in the bottom right. These numbers won't always be the same, depending on if you or other team members add manual tags.
- To quickly change a file’s name, click its name on the thumbnail to turn it into an editable text field:
Type your changes and press Enter to save the new name.
The Group By taskbar icon lets you customize how file thumbnails are organized into categories on the landing page.
Click on the icon to choose from these grouping options:
Files are not be separated into any groups.
|Files are grouped by when they were uploaded to the project, in weekly increments.|
|Created||Files are grouped by when they were taken (i.e. recorded/captured)|
|Type||Files are grouped into video and photo files.|
|Member|| Files are grouped by which member uploaded them.
Groups will be separated with headers based on their group categories. Each header shows the number of pictures and videos in that group. Here's an example of files grouped by "Uploaded" date:
The Sort By icon lets you customize how file thumbnails are sorted. Sorting is complementary to grouping; if you choose 'None' as your group setting, all files will be sorted in one big group. If you do choose a group setting, files are sorted within their specific groups.
Click on the icon to choose from these sorting options:
Files are sorted by when they were uploaded to the project, from most recent to least recent
|Created||Files are sorted by when they were taken (i.e. recorded/captured)|
|Type||Files are sorted by their type (first photos, then videos).|
|Member|| Files are sorted by which project member uploaded them, starting with the member with the least files.
|Name|| Files will be sorted alphabetically by their names, in this order:
