Navigating ProjectWise Share and searching for your files and folders is very simple. Folders are displayed with an intuitive, "breadcrumb" structure allowing you to navigate through the folders easily. A search box is always visible, where you can quickly find the item you are looking for.
When you first open ProjectWise Share, the home page displays with the folders and files that are contained in the ProjectWise Share folder. Items are organized by Name, Type, File Size, date Modified, or by the name of the user who the file was Modified By. Selecting one of these headings organizes the items by that heading.
You can open a file by double clicking it. Double clicking a folder opens the folder to display any files or folders inside that folder. You can navigate through the folder hierarchy by using the "breadcrumbs" which display your location in the folder hierarchy. Your current location is displayed in black as the last element in the breadcrumbs.
In the screenshot below, the breadcrumbs display "Home / Designs / i-models" which means that the user has first selected the Designs folder from the Home page, and the user has then selected the i-models folder from the Designs folder. The i-models folder is the current folder that the user is viewing.
To return to another folder, you can select that folder from the breadcrumbs. You can always return to the ProjectWise Share home page by selecting Home. If you are already viewing the home page, the breadcrumbs will display only the word "Home."
You can search for items by name or by type in ProjectWise Share, by entering a search string in the Search field and then selecting the Search icon or pressing Enter or Return. The results of your search display below the Search field.
To search all the contents of your ProjectWise Share, first ensure that you are viewing the ProjectWise Share Home page, as described above. When you enter a search string on the ProjectWise Share home page, the entire ProjectWise Share is searched for the items that match your search string.
You can also search for items within an individual folder only, by navigating to that folder and then entering a search string in the Search field. The Search results that display are limited to the items within the individual folder.
From the Search results, you can perform any of the typical file operations, or you can exit the Search results and navigate back to the ProjectWise Share Home page by selecting Home from the breadcrumbs.
