Below are a few methods for finding content located in the Content Collection. Note that, regardless of which method you use, you will only be able to see content that you have permission to view. If you are unable to find something that another person has shared with you, make sure they have set the proper permissions for you to use it.

Step-by-step guide

Searching from inside Content Collection

Search allows users to locate all files and folders that have been shared with them. If permissions are granted on a nested folder, you should search for the folder itself and bookmark it.

  • Click the Content Collection tab and click Search Content in the left navigation menu.

Searching from inside a course

  1. In the Control Panel, expand Content Collection. You will see a search bar.

  2. Enter your search terms and press Go.

Using the Go To Location function

Go to Location allows you to go directly to a specific folder that has been shared with them in the Content Collection and add a bookmark at the same time.

  1. Click the Content Collection tab.
  2. From the left navigation menu, click Tools > Go to Location.

  3. Enter the file path or click Browse to search for the folder.
  4. Enter a name for the bookmark.

  5. Click Submit.

Using bookmarks

Bookmarks give quick access to frequently used content without having to navigate through several folders. Bookmarks can be organized into folders and subfolders as needed. This tool is helpful when permissions are granted on a nested folder, since the Find Folder tool may not be used. 

Accessing your bookmarks

  1. Click the Content Collection tab.
  2. From the left navigation menu, click to expand Tools and click Bookmarks.

A list of your bookmarks will show.

Adding a bookmark from the Bookmarks screen

  1. Go to your Bookmarks (see above).
  2. Click Create Bookmark.
  3. Enter a name for and the location of your bookmark (or click Browse to find it). Click Submit.

  2. Check the box next to items you wish to bookmark.
  3. Click Bookmark Items.

  4. Name the bookmark and click Submit.
