Metaproperty Views

Use the two views below to create an overview page for a metaproperty. This will give your users a more visual way to browse the metaproperty.

Metaproperty tile view

This view shows all metaproperty options in a separate tile. The selected metaproperty (option) will not be set as a filter, so the moment you leave this view, no filter will be applied.

Metaproperty tile view (with filter)

This view categorizes all metaproperty options of the metaproperty in a separate tile and is very similar to the view mentioned above. The most significant difference is that when you click a metaproperty option, it will be set as a filter, which will remain applied until you manually clear it. 

Direct links to filters and search results

You can customize your portal so that a specific filter or search result appears when your users open the Bynder portal.  Customize one of the available example URLs below to link to your own filters and search results.
