The Admin Tool search allows admins to easily see relevant details for each search result and to sort by whichever detail they'd like. You can view thumbnails for each result, along with Title, which Media Library it belongs to, the media type, asset owner, asset duration, whether the asset has closed captions attached, and the upload date.

If you click on the Asset Title, a page will open taking you to a standalone view of the asset.

This CSV will list all of the assets, along with the Media Library they are in, the date they were uploaded, who uploaded them, the type of file they are, the permanent URL of the asset, its containing Media Library, the Media Library Description, whether the asset has closed captions, the length of the asset (if applicable), the size in bytes of all of the assets versions, when it was last viewed, and it's ID.

These various data fields are helpful in quickly assessing different aspects of the entire collection of assets contained in Warpwire.
