Utilizing Brandfolder Structure to Search

How can I filter my Brandfolder as a Guest user?

Brandfolder has multiple options for Guest users to filter assets which are either set up by the Brandfolder Administrators (Pins, Sections and Labels) or unique to your User account (Advanced Filters and View Options).




Sections appear across the top of your Brandfolder and Collections.

They are the broadest way of organizing assets in a Brandfolder and are commonly used to separate assets by their category, type, or purpose. Clicking on a Section's name will show you all of the assets within the Section.




Pins appear right above the Search Bar. These are created by the Brandfolder Administrator to highlight frequently used search terms. Administrators will feature the most relevant Pins above the Search Bar, but additional Pins can be found by clicking the icon to the left of the Search Bar.Additional_Pins.png




If they are enabled for your account, Labels will appear on the left hand side of the Brandfolder or Collection that you are accessing. You can open up the Labels drawer by clicking the two arrow icon as shown in the picture above. You can view Sub-Labels by double-clicking on the top-level Label.

Additionally, you can use Pins or Sections in tandem with Labels. For example, if you first click a Pin and then browse Labels, you will notice more refined results. 


Advanced Filters


Clicking the Filters button next to the Search Bar will open the Advanced Filters drawer which can be used to search by Tags, File Types, Custom Fields, Orientation, SKU Search, or Upload Date. You can also combine multiple filters to further narrow your search results.

For more information on Advanced Filters go here for our Administrator Knowledge Base Article.

To clear your search results you can utilize the Reset button at the top of the Advanced Filters Drawer.


View Options


When a Guest user visits Brandfolder for the first time the View Options will be set to defaults. Clicking View Options will allow you to change the following:

  • Layout: This allows you to use the standard Grid view, or the optional List view.
  • Assets per section: The default will display 32 assets per section. A user can also view 10, 32, 75, 150, 300 or 1000 assets per section.
  • Show custom fields: If Custom Fields are enabled on the account users can view the key and value fields in either the Grid or List view.
  • Asset info: Display asset info and tags in number of alternate languages.


Organizing and Sorting


Utilizing the Organize by section toggle will change whether Search results are divided by Section or displayed as one group. 

The Sort by dropdown allows users to choose from many options such as (Creation date, Upload date, Updated, Name or Popularity). If Brandfolder Administrators have manually placed assets into a desired order then Guest Users will also have a Sort by: Position option.
