Using the Search Function

This search feature allows you to do a search through the top-level node of a SharePoint connection for  sites, lists, folders, and files.  Filters can also be applied to the search criteria using the four main metadata fields (Created, Created By, Modified, Modified By) as well as content types. The search results can be sorted through, and you can view each returned item's properties.  You can also run actions on returned items using the right-click menu.

Advanced Mode Icon  This option is only available when Advanced Mode is enabled.
