Searching for files on iPhone or Android

How to search FotoWeb using apps for iOS and Android.



To search for files, tap in the search field and type in a search word. If you type in several words, FotoWeb will search for files that contain all of the words, but not necessarily in the exact order that they were typed (also known as an AND-search).

FotoWeb will then search all the archives that your logged-in user has access to and return a list of all the archives where the search resulted in hits.

The app will also save your search history so that when performing a future search you can easily click on one of your previous searches to perform it again. The search history will also be filtered as you type to display searches that match what you seem to be typing.

Tip: When the list of archives with the search results is displayed, swipe down to refresh the search.

Seeing the search results

FotoWeb iPhone navigation 1

To display the found files in an archive, tap on the archive you would like to open in the list. This will open a thumbnail grid view of the files found in that archive. You can tilt the device to display the grid in landscape mode. Then to get back to the archives list, use the Search result button in the upper left corner. From there you can use the Back button to return to the FotoWeb Desktop start screen.
