What are the different ways of searching for my content?

Search is the first step in finding your stuff & doing something with it. All the different views, tabs, and sections of the Upthere Home app feature a search bar at the top. You can use the search to find specific files as well as to find general types of files. Our customers enjoy using search as a filter — enter some terms that describe the type of file, file extension, location, and portions of the file name. For photos and videos, you can search by location, file name, file type, and camera model. You can find your panoramic photos by searching for “panoramic”.

Using Upthere's search as a filter for your files can be used as a convenient grouping mechanism. When you perform your search, the returned search results can be selected for activities like delete or add to a Loop by using the overflow menu. Think of our search as more than a way to find files with certain text in the file name; it can also be used to return relevant types of files in the content section you're searching in. Try searching your photos & videos by file type ("video", "photo"), file extension ("mp4", "gif"), or even file name ("vacation", "home") and see what you're able to find & select!

Tip: you can use your keyboard's Command+F keys (Mac) or Ctrl+F keys (Windows) to jump into the search bar at the top of the screen. From the Photos & Videos, Music, or Documents sections, use these shortcuts to jump into the search bar, then begin typing terms for your search.

To search across all your stuff, log into our new & improved web app at https://app.upthere.com. Use the search bar & category filters on the right to search across all content types — shared and personal content. Also, you can search the text contents inside your documents — Adobe Acrobat files (.PDF), spreadsheets, presentations, Microsoft Office documents, text documents, and tons of other file types for Mac and Windows.
