File Picker

The file picker is the window that opens when users click Browse Content Collection or Browse Course. The file picker is available everywhere users attach files.

The file picker can

  • Display a file or folder's name, last modification date, versions (files only) and size.

  • Sort on each column being displayed.

  • Change the number of items being displayed, editing the table's paging.

  • Search across all folders and files with a single search input.

  • Toggle between a list view and a thumbnail view. The interface for thumbnail view does not change.

  • Go to the current folder listing's parent folder in one click.

  • Quickly switch between the top-level content areas (My Content, Courses,

    Organizations, Institution, and Library), Bookmarks and the Learning Objects Catalog.

  • Navigate the folder hierarchy using breadcrumbs.

  • Switch to a more advanced search.

  • Upload a file.
