Brightspot CMS User Guide

Using collections as a search filter

Collections can be used as a search filter. You must have created the collections, or have access to shared collections, to use this filter.

To use collections as a search filter:

  1. In the header, click the search field to open the search panel.
  2. Expand Collections in the Global Filters widget in the left navigation bar.

    Here, you see a list of all of the collections to which you have access. This includes the collections you have created and those that have been shared.

  3. Select the collections you want to set as a search filter.

    Multiple collections can be selected at the same time in order to filter their results simultaneously.
