The filters available are:

  • Site Owner—This filter defaults to the active site you are working on, but also displays the other sites you have access to. You can select multiple sites to see the available related content.
  • Saved Searches—This filter defaults to Recent Activity, but also displays a list of saved searches you have created, as well as collections you have created or that have been shared with you. You can select a saved search or collection to see the content contained in each.
  • Content Type—This filter defaults to All Content Types; however, you can select a specific content type to only show assets that match your selection on The Shelf. For example, if you only want to see video assets on The Shelf, expand this menu and select Video.
  • Created By—This filter defaults to Anyone. You can select to filter the assets available by the editor or role who created the asset.
  • Status—This filter defaults to Published. You can select to display assets on The Shelf for any of the available publishing statuses.

Any filter selections you make are retained in The Shelf, which keeps you from having to reset them each time you visit a new asset.
