  2. Use direct touch to select the Recent or All tab, and then select the appropriate guide or guide folder. Folders appear on the All tab, but not the Recent tab. If you have a long list of guides and/or folders, use the up and down arrows on the right side of the screen to scroll the list.

    To clear the Select a guide or folder screen from your view at any time, select the Minimize button on the right side of the screen. You don't have to remember where you put the screen in your environment. To open it again quickly, just look at the palm of your hand again to open the Main menu, and then select the Work activity button again.

  3. To search for a guide, select the Search button at the bottom of the screen to display the holographic keyboard, and then enter some characters for the guide you're looking for or use the Microphone button to say the characters. As you start to enter the characters, the guide list automatically filters to the guide names that match those characters. Search returns all results that match the characters you enter.

  4. When you select a guide, the Select mode screen appears. Select whether you want to open the guide as an author or operator. To view a packaged guide, identified by the icon, you must select Operator.

    If you're a Dynamics 365 Guides admin, you can assign the Operator role to operators so that they can view guides but can't edit them. If you assign the Operator role to a user, the user can skip the Select mode screen and open a guide directly. For more information, see Assign an Author or Operator role to a user.
