Searching for tasks

There are two methods to searching for tasks in Hubstaff Tasks:

Using labels and avatars to search for tasks

To find tasks which have the same labels, simply click on the label assigned to a similar task as shown below:

After clicking on a label, all tasks which have the same label applied will appear on the Search results on the sidebar as shown here:

To search for tasks assigned to a specific user, simply click their avatar anywhere within the platform.

After clicking a user’s avatar, all tasks assigned to the specific team member will appear under the Search results section on the sidebar.

Alternatively, if you are in Tasks view within an open task, simply click on the avatar then click on View 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.
