I have just been added to a new SharePoint
00:00:04
site, a SharePoint dedicated to the
00:00:06
English sales department of my company.
00:00:09
I'm using now this new library and I would
00:00:12
like to be able to sort the documents
00:00:15
in a much more quick and easier way.
00:00:18
Because I'm new to the library, I don't
00:00:21
really know which documents to look for.
00:00:23
What can I do to help myself along the way?
00:00:27
Well, in each document library you have
00:00:29
access to what is called the Filters pane.
00:00:32
By less clicking this
00:00:34
symbol I can now filter.
00:00:35
What if I want to see only the documents
00:00:39
what you find in the last seven days?
00:00:42
But also only the word documents.
00:00:46
And here it is.
00:00:48
You will note that we can see the semester,
00:00:52
budget and the KPI presentation
00:00:54
which are not Word documents.
00:00:55
It is because these documents have been
00:00:58
pinned to the top of the SharePoint library,
00:01:01
so consider that they are
00:01:03
not part of the filters.
00:01:05
The most observant of you
00:01:07
may have noticed an issue.
00:01:09
Indeed I have.
00:01:11
Modified.
00:01:11
Which I can filter the type of
00:01:15
document that I can filter.
00:01:17
But what if I wanted to filter by the
00:01:21
people who created the document or by
00:01:24
the people who modified the document?
00:01:27
Where are these filters?
00:01:28
Well, they are nowhere to be found at first.
00:01:31
You have to add them manually.
00:01:33
How can you do so?
00:01:36
Simply left click on the column you wish
00:01:39
to add to the Filter *** column settings.
00:01:43
Bin to filter Spain.
00:01:46
And instantly.
00:01:48
It appears at the top of the list.
00:01:51
You can now use each and every different
00:01:53
column should you wish to add metadata.
00:01:55
For example,
00:01:56
you could also add them
00:01:58
to the field to Spain.
