Search and filter posts
Padlets can hold hundreds of posts. If you need to find just one post, it can be hard to find exactly what you're looking for.
Instead of reading through each post on your padlet, use search and filter. Search through all of the posts on your padlet by keyword, or filter by post color, author, or status.
Accessing the search and filter bar
From your padlet, click the search bar (indicated by a magnifying glass) in the upper right corner. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Cmd/Ctrl + F.
Once you have opened the search bar, you can search by typing keywords. You can also click the Funnel icon to reveal the filtering options.
The search bar allows you to search the following content of your posts:
- Post subject
- Post body
- Post author
- Attachment metadata
To search, simply type what you're looking for in the search bar. Only posts with content that matches your search will appear. When you clear your search, your padlet will revert to normal.
You can also filter the posts on your padlet from the search bar. Filter works the same way as search. When you apply a filter, only posts that match your filter will appear, and when you clear the filter, your padlet will revert to normal.
Click the Funnel icon to reveal the filtering options. You can filter by publish status, post color, or author.
If you have enabled content moderation, you can filter to see which posts have been published or which have been submitted but not yet approved.
Filter posts by color. Learn more about changing post color.
If you have enabled name attribution, you can filter posts by author.
