Searching for cards on a board

This article is about searching for cards on a specific board. To search for all cards across all boards, see Search for Cards (All Boards).

Searching on a board allows you to focus on specific labels, members assigned to cards, due dates and keywords. The search will stay in place until you dismiss it, even if you leave the board or go to calendar view.

Applying

Apply the search using the "Search" button in the board's menu, then selecting a combination of labels, members. due dates and keywords.

Searches are applied per member then by selected labels. For example, if you select "Jane" and "Jason" and the "Red" and "Yellow" labels, the search highlights cards assigned to either Jason or Jane (or both) that have at least one of the red or yellow labels.

If you select one or more labels, but no members, the search highlights cards with any of the selected labels, i.e. all red-labeled, yellow-labeled, or red-and-yellow-labeled cards. If you select one or more members, but no labels, the search highlights cards with any of the selected members, i.e. all cards assigned to "Jason", "Jane", or both.

Due dates can be searched for by the following criteria: due in the next day, due in the next week, due in the next month, and overdue.

You can also search by card title using comma-separated terms. Items are filtered using the subset of cards with matching terms, then searched as above. Try typing "*" or "/", without any other text– this will show the number of cards per list.

Searching for Custom Fields

While labels and board members have dedicated buttons to search for on those items, data in Custom Fields is searched through the search box. Typing the name of or data within your Custom Field in that box will search the board for matching cards:
