If you’re on the hunt for knowledge, SlideShare has the documents, presentations, and infographics for you! Get familiar with our search feature and Explore page to see all we have to offer.
Search and Explore filtering options are not available through the SlideShare app at this time.
How to search
Simply type a keyword, the name of the content you want to view surrounded by quotations, or a creator’s username into the search bar and click enter. You’ll be presented with a list of results matching your query that you can peruse to your heart’s content.
There may be a delay in seeing your own SlideShare uploads within the site's search results. When files are uploaded to SlideShare publicly, it takes a few hours before they are indexed
Filtering your search results
Using the SlideShare website, you can filter your search results even further to get the best match for your query. Search filters are located at the top right corner of the search results page, and provide you with the ability to sort the content displayed by:
- Upload date
- File Type
To apply a filter, click on the filter type and make your selection. You’ll then see the search results change to match your custom parameters.
If you’re not searching for specifics and are instead interested in browsing SlideShare for fun, be sure to check out our Explore page!
The “Explore” tab can be found in the upper-left corner of any page on the SlideShare website. You can also navigate there using the SlideShare mobile app by tapping on the “Explore” option at the bottom of your device’s screen
Using the SlideShare website, you can select from the following:
- Most Popular
- Editors Picks
- Any of the listed categories
Using the “more filters” drop-down menu at the top of the page, you can filter each section by content type (presentation, document, etc.), language, or the time period content was uploaded within
If you’re looking through a particular category, selecting “Featured” or “Popular” (located directly above “more filters”) will show you the most popular or featured content within the category alone. Clicking on a different category within the “Category” filter will take you to the selected category’s page.
Within the “Explore” section of the SlideShare mobile app, you’ll see tabs at the top of your device’s screen for “All Categories” and “Following”. The “All Categories” tab will show you each category available on SlideShare, with a “Follow” button located to the right. Any categories you follow will appear in the “Following” tab for easy access.
