Maintenance Jobs

All maintenance jobs can only be performed in the Power Workspace. This includes appending, overwriting and remove values from specific fields of a record.

Advanced Searches

Users can only access the Advanced Search page, or query builder in the Power Workspace. The Advanced Search allows users to build queries using specific field criteria. Users in the Content Workspace can navigate to the Advanced Search page by clicking on the main menu and clicking the “Advanced Search” link.

UPDATE: As of November 2023, there is an Advanced Search function in the Content Workspace. It works similarly, but is not as robust as the search in the Power Workspace and a few fields are unavailable as filters. However, it can do many of the same things - like search on a specific location, business group, or copyright.

Views vs Dynamic Collections

Views and Dynamic collections are both saved searches that update themselves when assets are added or removed. Functionally they serve the same purpose, however the nomenclature differs depending on the UI. In the Power Workspace they are called Views. In the Content Workspace they are called Dynamic Collections. Views are not visible in the Content Workspace and dynamic collections are not visible in the Power Workspace. In order to transfer old views over to Content Workspace, users must recreate the advanced search as a Dynamic Collection.

The ‘Browse’ View

The Browse View in the Power Workspace is where you can browse for assets using Aprimo’s overarching classification structure. This view doesn’t exist in the Content Workspace but can be navigated to via the main menu by clicking on the ‘Browse’ link.
