Finding your stuff

There are a number of ways to help you find people, places, and content in your community. Searching, browsing, filtering, tagging, sorting, and bookmarking help you keep track of and locate the things you need.


  • Search to find people, places, or content by typing what you’re searching for into the Search field in the upper right corner. Matching results appear in a box below the field as you type.
