Understanding search panel views

The search panel provides different views of search results depending on the retrieved content types. This topic provides an overview of the different types of views and how they can be used.

List view

List view displays the retrieved assets as a list with columns of fields. This view is available for all content types. The following illustration is an example of list view.

Grid view

Grid view displays previews of the retrieved assets. This view is available for content types that have a preview image, such as images and attachments. The following illustration is an example of grid view.

Mixed view

Mixed view is a combination of list and grid views. The assets with a preview appear in the grid, and other assets appear in the list. The following illustration is an example of a mixed view with images in a grid and authors in a list.

Hierarchy view

Hierarchy view is a view that makes it easier to view a large number of tags or sections. As the name suggests, assets appear in a hierarchical view, allowing you to dig further down and understand any relationships. The following illustration is an example of a hierarchy view with tags:

Board view

Board view groups results by field and includes grouping options for default statuses and workflow statuses. With additional development work, you can group content by any field and enable drag and drop functionality so those fields can be updated directly from search. The following illustration is an example of board view with articles grouped by section.
