Global Search from Gallery

What does Gallery search allow you to do?

  • Search allows you to look for and surface results across Kapost.
  • Search will look at a multitude of fields including, but not limited to: Title, Author, Content Body, Standard Fields, and Custom Fields.
  • Search allows you to find the content you need as quickly as possible.
  • Use Boolean queries in global search: include AND, NOT, and OR to specify what you’re looking for.

Please note:  Unlike Global Search in Studio, Gallery Global Search does not search through attachments and does not weigh by recency.


Steps To Initiate Search

  1. While in Gallery, click the search magnifying glass icon on the top navigation bar. An overlay will open with a search input field. *Smart search without the overlay is also available on all search bars in Gallery including Collections, Favorites, and All Content within Manage Content.
  2. Type in your query to find results
  3. Click on the asset to open it 
  4. Click the share icon to share the asset (Only available if enabled in settings and the asset has a shareable URL)
  5. Click the download icon (Only available if enabled in settings and the asset is downloadable)
  6. Click the X to exit the window 

What shows up when you search?

  • After typing in your query you will see results start to come in via the type-ahead searching
  • Results are arranged by type into three categories: Gallery content, Collections, Studio content
  • Search results are codified with appropriate asset type icons
  • Snippets will show the matching query pieces in bold

What is the benefit of search?

  • You can now search for assets across Gallery and Studio content as well as Gallery collections without having to go to separate locations
  • The search now includes more exhaustive data points, providing more accurate results
  • You can leverage type-ahead searching to surface results
  • You can expect a very fast and easy to use interface


Kapost Gallery Search in the Salesforce

When you embed the Kapost Gallery anywhere or install the Kapost Salesforce Gallery App, logged in users will have the ability to utilize an extension of Gallery Search. Use the Search All Content Bar at the top of the Gallery. Note, the example below is showing the Search All Content icon within the Kapost Salesforce Gallery App when Content Recommendations have been turned on.


Global Search Logic

The Kapost global search code is built to deal with "stemming."

For example, "keeled" does bring up "keel" because the stem of "keeled" is "keel." On the other hand, "kee" is just a grouping of characters not related to "keel" so it is not matched.

The Search Logic will use natural English language processing to help make words more discoverable in our search. With that in mind, “kee” is not a word in English so it doesn’t know “kee” and “keel” are related based on English syntax.


Search within Collections:

Using regular search within a Gallery collection uses the same logic that Global search does, but it limits the search to only content within the collection being searched.

From within a Collection, sort your search results for the content in the Collection. Once you enter in a search term, your results will sort by relevancy by default and provide content relevant to your search term.


To filter your search results differently, choose an option from the dropdown menu next to the search area.
