The My Resources Page
The link to the My Resources page is located in the main navigation at the top of each HydroShare page and is always visible regardless of what HydroShare webpage you are on. My Resources is where you can view resources you have created, added, copied, or favorited, as well as resources that have been shared with you. Your collections will also appear here. The tabular view lists each resource on a separate row. If you want to view the landing page for a resource, you can click on the title of the resource in the table.
Sorting and Filtering
Over time users often accumulate a large number of resources and collections. You can do the following to find resources within the My Resources list view:
- Sort Resources
You can sort your resources by type, alphabetically by title, alphabetically by author last name, by the date created, and by most recent modification at the file level by clicking on the small arrows next to each column in the table.
- Filter Resources
Use the filter boxes on the left of the list view to selectively view your resources by ownership, sharing status, added by you, favorites, and recently updated. Select the star icon to the left of the resource title in the list view to favorite a resource.
- Search Resources
- You can type a search term in the Search box at the top of the page and hit Enter to search for resources with metadata that match one or more search terms. Clicking on the down arrow at the right side of the search box enables you to enter more specific search terms to search by resource type, author, or subject keyword. If you don’t use one of the more specific search criteria, HydroShare will show any resources where there is a match between your search term and any of the resource’s metadata values.
The labels feature allows you to further sort and filter your data through user made categories. To create a label click the label icon at the top left of the page. Once a label has been created, it will appear under the labels field, pictured below. To label a resource, select the tag shaped icon to the left of the resource title in the list view. You will then be prompted to choose which label to assign to the resource. If you select the label in the labels box, only the resources with the selected label will appear in the list view.
Bulk Operations for Resources
It can be tedious to favorite, label, or delete each resource individually. To make this easier, HydroShare provides functionality for favoriting, labeling, and deleting multiple resources at one time. There is a check box next to each resource in the tabular list view of resources that can be used to select multiple resources at one time. Once a set of resources is selected, the buttons at the top of the tabular view of resources can be used to label, favorite, or delete the selected resources.
