We include example searches where they’re helpful.

There are two types of field:
Native metadata fields are a property of the file itself.
For example, the author of the file.
Non-native metadata fields contain data that we’ve discovered in the file.
For example, a list of credit card numbers in the body of a file.
You can search on any of these fields using Query Builder.

Every field belongs to a category:
Can the value appear in a list of search results? Typically, we don’t display fields that are long lists (credit card numbers, for example).
Sample values you would see in the field.

Can the field be included in an export?
