Browsing the Unqork Marketplace
When you log in, you’ll see the Marketplace home page. From the home page, you can view either a Listings Directory or a Partner Directory. Here, you’ll see all that Marketplace has to offer, including both assets and their publishers. Let's look at how you can browse through the Marketplace to find exactly what you're looking for.
What You'll Learn
In this article, you’ll learn how to:
The Marketplace offers 2 directories so you can easily find what you're looking for. The Listings Directory holds all the assets in the Marketplace. And the Partner Directory holds each partner who provided an asset. In the center of the Marketplace home page, you'll see a tab for each directory. Clicking these tabs brings you to the selected directory. Once you're in a directory, you'll see a list of cards.
Cards in the Listings Directory represent 1 asset each. Here's what an asset card looks like:
You'll notice each card features an icon. These icons correspond to the function of the item. To the right of the icon is the listing title as well as the core function of the asset. Below the asset's function is a short description. Finally, for easy identification, a listing's type shows at the bottom of its card.
To view more information on the listing, you'll click the card. When you click a listing card, the listing detail page opens. We discuss these pages in detail in our Navigating Marketplace Listings Pages article.
Cards in the Partner Directory represent 1 partner each. Here's what a partner card looks like:
Partner cards are similar to listing cards in that they feature a logo, name, and category. Those categories are Solutions Partner or Technology Partner. You'll see the category in the bottom left of the partner card.
To view more information on a partner, you'll click their card. When you click a partner card, the partner detail page opens. We discuss these pages in detail in our Navigating Marketplace Partner Pages article.
Now that you have a good idea of how to identify listings, let's turn to navigating the Marketplace. If you have a general idea of what you're looking for, you can use the Marketplace search feature. Each directory has its own search bar. What you enter here is a global search run against all details of a listing or partner. So, the Marketplace will search through more than just titles to find you a match. It'll also run your search against descriptions, tags, and more.
So, you'll only perform your search in the directory you're currently viewing.
|1.||Click the search bar in the center of the directory.|
|2.||Enter your search term. The cards adjust automatically, showing those that match what you've entered.|
To clear a search, delete your search term from the search bar.
Sorting a directory helps you find what you're looking for. To help, each directory gives you a few sorting options. You'll find a drop-down to the right of the search bar in each directory.
You have 4 ways to sort cards in the Listings Directory:
And you have 3 ways to sort cards in the Partner Directory:
To sort listings by any of the above options:
|1.||Click the sort drop-down in the directory.|
|2.||Select an option to sort by. The directory updates to reflect your selection.|
Filtering a Directory
To help you find listings even more quickly, each directory also has built-in filters.
In the Listings Directory, you can filter by listing type and/or category. In the Partner Directory, you can filter by partner type. To use the filters in a directory:
|1.||Click a filter on the left of the directory. Selected filters show as teal.|
|2.||To exclude an option from your results, click it again. Excluded options show as navy.|
If you want to clear your filters and view all listings again, click the Reset All Filters button.
