Advanced Search

Advanced Search filters help you quickly find the specific project, task, message, team (or more!) that you’re looking for, so you can stay focused on the most important work. These filters enable you to add additional guardrails to your search to narrow the results, such as tasks, projects, people, teams, tags, and messages. You also have access to ‘quick filters’ or ‘shortcuts’ that apply filters to your search automatically.

After you type in a search term, apply one of the advanced filters to narrow the results. Then, if desired, select additional filters to narrow the results even further. In this example the user has chosen to search ‘marketing’ and apply a filter to search only tasks.
