We built the Search tab to increase visibility into what other users in your organization are creating in Amplitude. All charts, dashboards, and cohorts function as saved objects and all exist in the Search tab. Charts/dashboards are default sorted by a popularity metric that combines the number of views and their recency.
Table of Contents
Each chart, dashboard, and cohort will have an owner, which is the person who created the object. The objects that you have created will appear under "My Stuff". Discoverable objects created by other users in your organization will appear in "Everything else" section.
It is possible to transfer ownership in the "More" icon on a chart, dashboard, or cohort. Once you transfer your ownership, you will no longer be able to make edits to the dashboard unless you are an admin or manager. However, you are able to propose chart additions to a dashboard. Here is more information.
You can mark objects you have ownership over as "Discoverable" or "Unlisted". Anything marked as "Discoverable" can be found by any other user in your organization. Anything marked as "Unlisted" can only be found by you, admins, managers, and people with a direct link to the chart or dashboard. "Discoverable" objects have a green globe icon while "Unlisted" objects have a grayed out globe icon. You can change the discoverability of an object on that object's screen.
The search bar can be used to quickly locate a chart, dashboard, or cohort by its title or owner. The objects that you own will be listed in the "My Stuff" tab while objects others in your organization own will be in the "All" tab. You can search for content by using specific tags. All the following tag types except "is:" will do a best match, so the text you are searching for does not need to match exactly. Tags of the same type will be put together in an "OR" clause while different tag types will be put together in an "AND" clause. For example, searching for project:"Amplitude Demo: Music"project:"Amplitude Demo: B2B"owner:email@example.com will return content from both projects but must be owned by that user. These are the tags that you can search with:
- any text: This matches against the chart or dashboard title.
You can also prefix your search string with the following options:
- project: You can search for matches against project titles. Project titles with spaces will need to be in quotes.
- owner: This will match against the object owner's name or email.
- team: This will match against the team (e.g. Product, Engineering, Marketing, etc.) the object's owner is a part of.
- is:discoverable: This will match only discoverable objects.
- is:chart: This will return only charts.
- is:dashboard: This will return only dashboards.
Objects cannot be deleted directly and are instead archived so that they are marked as deprecated. To find your archived charts, type in the search box "is:archived". This is true for archived dashboards and cohorts as well.
To only search for dashboards that are unlisted, type in the search box "is:unlisted". If you are a manager or an admin, you are able to see all unlisted objects for the entire organization. For more information on user permissions, click here.
Specific Chart Types
Search for certain saved charts by typing the search string "type:" followed by the type of chart you are looking for. The example below would return all Event Segmentation charts that you are the owner of in addition to all discoverable Event Segmentation charts created by other users in your org in the "All" tab.
