This question already has an answer here:
As a company, we store a large amount of product images on Google Drive.
To illustrate the point: we have one product with multiple images (eg. from different angles) all saved with different suffixes e.g. 123456C.jpg, 123456Ca.jpg, 123456Cb.jpg etc.
Working from different browsers on both mac and PC, non of us can search for any file unless we type in the full file name. This makes workflow tricky when usually we'd type in the first 3 numbers or so and up would pop (in the dropdown) all related images.
The small dropdown arrow next to the blue search button with search parameters is set to all file types, unspecified and owned by anyone.
The design studio we work with and have images shared with does not have the same problem. They could start typing in 123... and all the files that start with 123 would pop up to select (below the search bar).
To confuse things further, if we type title: "123" and enter, this works. But it's a workaround, not a solution.Can anyone help?
EDIT: No duplicate qn. - I want to search with the beginning of a filename, not the middle. It seems to work with one account that has shared images with us, but not ours. I believe the problem lies in sharing and ownership but can't work out where.
