 +====== ​ ======
 +
 +
 +
 +The Artwork Group Explorer displays a list of Artwork Groups and is visible in the explorer menus when artwork is enabled for the company.
 +
 +
 +
 +Click Explorer > Explore Artwork Group
 +
 +
 +
 +{{::​artwork_app_-_artwork_group_explorer_option.png?​nolink&​|}}
 +
 +
 +
 +Here's an example of what the Artwork Group Explorer will look like:

 +

 +
 +
 +
 +===== Basic Search and Filter Criteria =====
 +
 +
 +
 +The following search and filter criteria are available in the basic explorer search panel:

 +
 +
 +
 +===== Artwork Group Explorer Columns =====
 +
 +
 +
 +The Artwork Group Explorer column chooser shows the following columns. The checked columns are shown by default.
 +
 +
 +
 +{{::​artwork_app_-_artwork_group_explorer_columns.png?​nolink&​|}}
 +
 +
 +
 +One of the conceptual differences between the Artwork Group explorer and most other Explorers is how it handles child Artwork Items (and their Proof Files). The creation of sub-explorers for Artwork Items and Proof Files would introduce a level of nesting that most users would find confusing and unhelpful. Further, it would clutter the screen with 2 (or 3) Explorers for artwork.
 +
 +
 +
 +In the Artwork Group explorer, Artwork Items are displayed **within** the artwork group line. If there are multiple artwork items in a group, then the value from all Artwork Items is displayed together on a multi-line row. For example, if an Artwork Group had two Artwork Items (and corresponding Proof Files), the column for “File Name” would be displayed as:
 +
 +
 +
 +Picture1.jpg;​
 +
 +
 +
 +Picture2.jpg;​
 +
 +
 +
 +Picture3.jpg
 +
 +
 +
 +The explorer row height is automatically set to accommodate the number of proof files if any of the artwork item or proof information is displayed.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Artwork Group Right-Click Options =====
 +
 +
 +
 +Right-clicking on an Artwork Group in Explorer displays an action menu specific to the artwork group selected.
 +
 +
 +
 +Here's a view of the default right click options menu:
 +
 +
 +
 +{{::​artwork_app_-_artwork_group_explorer_right_click_menu.png?​nolink&​|}}
 +
 +
 +
 +The actions that are available for the artwork are dependent upon the following factors:
 +  * That current status of the artwork.
 +  * The band of the artwork.
 +  * The statuses enabled in artwork setup.
 +  * The user and her/his security rights.
 +  * The status of the order or estimate.
 +
 +
 +
 +In addition to the standard actions for artwork groups, the following actions are also included in the right-click pop-up menu.
