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 search to find specific files (targeted search) and to find general types of files (filtered search). Just start typing in the search bar and we'll show results based on your inputs (even partial words).

- For photos & videos, you can search by file type ("video", "photo"), file extension ("mp4", "gif"), location ("Hawaii", "Canada"), camera model ("Canon", "iPhone"), or file name ("vacation", "home"). You can even find your panoramic photos by searching for “panoramic”.

- For music, you can search by artist, album, or song name.

- For documents, you can search by file type ("spreadsheet", "presentation"), file extension ("xlsx", "numbers", "pptx"), or file name ("budget", "warranty").

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.

After you search, the returned search results can be multi-selected for activities like delete or add to a Loop by using the overflow menu.

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 shared & personal content. You can drill down into more specific attributes starting from the broadest (“find a picture taken in Massachusetts”) to the narrowest (“find a picture taken in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2015 using my iPhone 5”). Check out our web app FAQ and the video demo below for more details:

You can also 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. Check out our indexed text search FAQ and the video demo below for more details:
