When should I use project search?

Project search should be used when you are searching for files within a specific project

Search Projects

To search for a particular project, please click on the search bar located on the top of the projects listing. Searching in this modal will only return the projects themselves—you can also use the icon immediately below to filter by a specific type of project.

Search within projects

Once in a project, you can search contents within that project by clicking into the search bar.

Use the type icon below the search bar to filter by file type and the filter icon to select an advanced filter option.

Projects search is most powerful when utilized in expanded view.

So, when do I use global search?

Global search is recommended when the enclosing folder of a Benchling entry or inventory item is unknown.
