I have a site with thousands of files uploaded, and Drupal's admin view doesn't seem to offer a comprehensive filter for the Files view like it does with the Content view.

There also apparently isn't the option to search the files either.

Files view:

Is any such filter or search option available? This would make updating files 10 x faster!

  • Define "better", please. – Mołot Dec 11 '14 at 22:25
  • By 'better', I mean something with more options than 'status' and 'type'. Something like the Content view filter, but with 'filename', 'author', 'date created', 'date modified' etc, and preferably a search function – Timmah Dec 11 '14 at 22:34

The best thing to do here is create a custom VBO view to suit your needs! It can have all the filters and sortable columns you want, and ... checkboxes so you can perform actions on the selected items.

See a guide here for using Views Bulk Operations.

Don't forget to set the views access permssions as you want to create an admin only vbo view !
