Searching Bookmarks

The left hand search pane allows you to select only those bookmarks of interest. Search criteria include:

Keyword – Searches words in the bookmark description.

Owner – Account name of the person who created the bookmark. MIP does smart matching as you type the account name so you don’t have to type the entire name.

Time Range – limit search to date bookmark was created or modified or video time range.

Channel List – restricts search to specific channels. The feature may be expanded or collapsed by pressing the chevron on the right. Typing all or part of a channel name into the Filter text box limits the display to matching channels.

Last Searches – remembers the last 5 searches, this feature may also be expanded or collapsed by pressing the chevron on the right.

Once you have entered your search criteria press <Search> at the bottom of the pane. The page will be refreshed with only bookmarks that match the search criteria. The clear search parameters press <Reset>.

Let’s say you want to review all the bookmarks for the PBS channel. Expand the channel list, expand the TS probe encoder if not already expanded and select PBS. Press Search, the page is refreshed but now it only shows bookmarks that match the search criteria, in this case PBS.

Note: since we searched by channel the displayed clips have multiple owners. Whether or not a particular bookmark is visible depends on how the bookmark owner set sharing policy.
