Finding your content

You don't have to worry about finding your content in Kentico Cloud, even when you have thousands of content items. There are different filters you can use to find what you need.

See how to find specific content items inside the app.

Table of contents

    When you know the name of a content item, you can use the Filter to find it. Searching for assets also works in a similar way.

    Watch the example below to see how to find content with “coffee” in its name.

    Filtering content items by name works well when you know exactly what you’re looking for. Sometimes you might not know what content has been assigned to you. That’s when the left-side filtering options come to the rescue.

    Filtering your content

    Let’s say you’d like to find all brewers and cafes that are ready for you to review. Combine the left-side filters and:

    1. Select Brewer and Cafe in the Content type filter group.
    2. Select Review in the Workflow step filter group.

    If you want to find content according to other criteria, you can also refine the list of content items by:

    • Content type  create content types to define the structure of your content items exactly according to your needs.
    • Location in sitemap  organize content based on where it is in your sitemap.
    • Workflow step  you can set up workflow steps to match your content production process and use them to keep track of the work.
    • Contributor  assign a specific person to be responsible for a specific content item.
    • Taxonomy  organize and tag your content based on your business-specific categories and taxonomy terms.
    • Status  quickly find untranslated items or items with incomplete required elements. Possible statuses:
      • Unfinished: One or more content elements are not filled in correctly.
      • Ready: All content elements are filled in correctly, the item is ready for publishing.
      • All done: Item is already published, no action needed.
      • Not translated: The item is not yet translated to the currently selected language.
    • Publishing state  easily separate published, not yet published, and unpublished items.

    What's next?

    • If you don't have your own content yet, create your first content type.
    • Once you have types defined, create your own content items.
    • If you're done with the sample project, create a new project to let your ideas shine.
    • Learn how to search for assets in your project.
