Searching for files and folders in Spaces

I have a client using Spaced to hold thousands of audio and video files for her online classes. They are having a difficult time finding files they are looking for because the File Filter box needs the exact file or folder name starting from the first character of the file or folder. Is there a way to wildcard the searches? For example, if they were looking for a file or folder that had the word “video” in the middle of the name, could they search for something like video? I can’t find anything in the documentation.

Thanks for your post. The filter box performs a “Begins with” filter on the files and folders at the current level.

This is indeed a good ask. Feel free to share your ideas at
