ℹ️ For file uploaded documents, the file path metadata includes all folders from the top container leading to the folder containing the document. Child documents (attachments and embedded docs) file paths include the file name of the parent document.

For example, let’s assume this is the full file path of a set of documents:

\2018 Logikcull Sample Data Medium.zip\2018 Logikcull Sample Data Medium\001_Mail_PST\kate_symes_003_1_1.pst\Top of Personal Folders\symes-k\kate symes 6-27-02\Notes Folders\'sent mail

The file path can be viewed in the document card in search results:

Let's say you're interested in reviewing the entirety of the kate_symes_003_1_1.pst path.

Option 1: Paste the file_path: search into the search bar

You would want to select the file path up until the folder you are interested in, wrapping your selection in quotes and pasting into the search bar.

In this case, it would look like this:

file_path:“\2018 Logikcull Sample Data Medium.zip\2018 Logikcull Sample Data Medium\001_Mail_PST\kate_symes_003_1_1.pst”

Option 2: Pull up the Search Builder and select the file path field

Copy and paste the file path to include only the folders of interest into the search bar.

"\2017 Logikcull Sample Data large.zip\2017 Logikcull Sample Data\001_Mail_PST\sally_beck_002_1_1_1.pst"

⚠️ Make sure to keep the double-quotes.

You can switch to the grid view to verify all the file paths and review your results. This field is sortable, meaning you can sort documents by file path. This is useful if you need to search for documents within a subfolder or subdirectory.

You can also run a CSV download with the file path data. Make sure to include the File Path field, and then export the results into a spreadsheet.

⚠️ Slack Uploads Note!

Slack file paths are captured with forward-facing slashes. Please make sure your searches reflect this.

E.g., Slack.com/original/slackdemodata
