You can use a search folder in the administration interface to search the assets in the asset tree. You can search for assets by terms or status. For example, you can search for the following items:
All assets that contain the word "Squiz".
All assets approved to go live.
All live assets containing the words "Squiz Australia".
You can also specify asset types in which to search. For example, find all standard pages that contain the word "Squiz".
The search folder asset can only return up to 100 results.
The assets that match the search criteria will be linked under the search folder in the asset tree, as shown in the figure:
To get the latest list of results:
Right-click on the Search folder.
The assets that no longer match the search criteria will be removed from under the search folder in the asset tree.

Read the Asset details screen documentation for more information about the status, future status, thumbnail, and details sections.
