Searching for tasks

When searching through an organization’s tasks in Hubstaff Tasks, the search results will be generated based on the following task information:

* Title of task
* Description of task
* Comments on a task
* Checklists names
* Checklists items

Now, you’ll also be able to manually filter your search based on several criteria to have relevant tasks appear first in the results.  For example, using the keywords “assignee:me” will filter your results in a way that all of your own assigned tasks appear at the top.
