The "Everything" function gives a room-spanning overview of all content you have access to. Of course, you are only able to call up content from rooms in which you are a member and that you have the right to see (regarding your rights group).
Where can I find the "Everything" function?
A click on the "Everything" button in the sidebar opens a drop-down list with various options.

The same option you'll get by doing a simple mouseover and clicking on the "More" button (symbol: "tree dots") that appears thereafter.

View of individual modules
When selecting a module, e.g. "Tasks", an extra list of saved filters appears. For each module there are predefined standard filters. In the case of "Tasks" you'll find "My Open Tasks", "All Open Tasks" and "All Closed Tasks". You can also create custom views. After that you'll always see those automatically within the selection (here: "Custom View"). The order of the filter options can also be changed. To find out how to do that, please have a look at: Working with views / filters.
