Smart Folders: exclude assets with no Source _OR_ Copyright field data

Morning all,

I am currently setting up some smart folders for external users to be able to use our images to sell our properties. We want to limit their access such that they can only see certain types of accommodations in each folder; the problem, however, is how to limit results such that only assets with Source / Copyright data is available. It doesn't look like this can be done, any ideas?

Re: Smart Folders: exclude assets with no Source _OR_ Copyright field data

Hi Christopher,

You would be able to do this via a nested smart folder - where the outer one is in 'ANY' mode and has conditions to check if each field is present, and an inner smart folder which uses the 'Source results from parent' option and applies whatever additional search conditions you wish to add.

It looks like the IS PRESENT search condition isn't currently available on those fields, but we'll have a look at enabling it. As a workaround, you could use multiple 'CONTAINS' conditions in the 'ANY' (say checking for vowels).

If you mean that you want to restrict to files which have both, most of the concepts in the above would stay the same, but you would use ALL in the former, and nested smartfolders in the latter workaround.
