Searching for tasks

Using keywords and filters to search for tasks

When searching through an organization’s 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

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.
