Filters for Compliance Search

You can refine the search results by filtering the items in search results and review sets based on the metadata of the items. Filtering is useful when you need to narrow your focus in a large list of items.

Filters are grouped together by metadata fields such as file type, from, modified date. Filters are usually displayed with the number of results that can be found in each group for a particular set of items.
