"Recents" is a FLAT listing of all recently used content items by the current user - providing a convenient mechanism for users to quickly find the latest items they used. Recent content can be accessed from the Home Dashboard as well as many other locations through the application where content is accessed.
How it works
The Recent item listing is a self-maintaining list, that the system tracks based on a user's system usage and access. There is no active steps a user needs to do for an item to be flagged as recent. The list is limited to the most recent 20 items.
Note: This view does not include recent data sources. These are shown when viewing and picking data sources for Discover and Formulate etc.
The Recent view is presented in numerous places throughout the application and is denoted by a "clock" icon.
Recents are the either the first or second view shown to users from the content manager in the pro client (if there are no favorite items set.)
Recents can also be found in the quick start panel.
And, they can appear in various content panels used in the apps directly as a folder (like the content panel in Discover below).

Recent Item Actions and Tools
Any items found in the recents folder can be used as if they were found in a normal folder structure. The functionality will depend on the relevant use case in the app. From inside the main content manager, all content actions and tools can be used on all items flagged as recent. The only function NOT available in the recents folder, within the content manager, is the ability to PASTE a copied item into the recents folder itself.
