Introducing SmartFilters for Modern Document Libraries
Published Dec 09 2016 12:52 AM 23.5K Views

Earlier this year, when we rolled out modern SharePoint document libraries, our goals went beyond just enhanced user experience. Creating modern content management is essential to empower new business value built on SharePoint.  That’s why we’re pleased to announce the availability of SmartFilters for SharePoint modern document libraries, now rolling out to First Release, as announced this morning at SharePoint Fest Chicago.


SmartFilters provide dynamic search capabilities based on the rich metadata available inside a document library.




SmartFilters can be opened by clicking on the “funnel” icon on the right side of the library command bar.  By default, SmartFilters provide a graphically rich way to filter a view of a library by modified date, modified by, and document type.  Additional metadata columns in the view can be selected and also filtered using the SmartFilter.  Finally, SmartFilters can be saved as a custom view for any library.
