New in Brandkit - AND/OR Searches


David Vaassen - Friday, December 15, 2017

Today we rolled out a tweak to the Search box in Brandkit to add a little bit more power and flexibility.

We've had a bit of feedback about having this particular feature, so we're pleased to be able to offer it.

So what is it?

In Brandkit from the beginning whenever you used the search box, every new Tag you added to the search box, refined the search - that is - gave you fewer results. This is known as an AND search.

i.e. Find assets that have this Tag AND this Tag.

e.g. A search for 'Image', 'University of Waikato' with AND will result in 41 assets found.

Now you can switch to OR whenever you're searching for multiple Tags. OR is the opposite of AND and expands your search, giving you more results.

i.e. Find assets that have this Tag OR this Tag.

e.g. A search for 'Image', 'University of Waikato' with OR will result in 190 assets found.

The AND > OR option appears whenever you do a multi Tag search, and appears immediately below the search box on the right hand side.

AND is still the default search mode.

To switch to OR, click the AND > OR link. The page will reload in OR mode and new search result will load in the Assets Grid.

To switch back to AND mode click the link again.

...and One More Thing


A number of our users need to search for a list of product id's all at once. Previously this wasn't possible (e.g. Grocery trade looking for groups of product images).

Now you can Copy and Paste a list of comma separated ID's (e.g. barcodes) into the search box and we'll convert each comma separated value into a Tag.

Initially (because AND is the default search) there will generally be no results as most ID's are unique. However switch to the OR search mode, and the results will pour in.


Below is an example, where a comma separated list of two grocery product barcodes is pasted into the Search box and the OR mode is activated.

Please note: If you have a custom Assets page created for you, you may not have this new feature available. In that case, please let us know you want it.


Enjoy.


As always is you have any questions or feedback - we're listening.


Happy Branding :)
