and I’ve read the original squizmap (11746, closed) which suggested that a search page could be made to work…
In my experience, I’ve found What’s New assets to be convenient and easy to setup. It is possible to do the same with search pages, but past experiences have left me jaded and thinking of them as a bit clunky with the extra settings required.
I’d be hopeful that the intended replacement (rolling what’s new functionality into asset listings) would be as easy as what’s new assets are now.
