    Thanks for your feedback!

    We’ve improved upon the Filter menu within a plan to give provide options for viewing certain tasks within a board.

    We are planning to expand upon both the Filter menu options while exploring how to build search functionality that can fulfill the needs mentioned on this thread. Please comment if there’s anything in particular you’d like for our team to consider!

    Cheers,

    The Planner Team

        It's great that there is a Filter option in Planner that lets you search for tasks. However, most users won't think of using the actual Filter option for performing their 'search'. It's just not as intuitive.

        I have tried this with many people already who were new to Planner and none of them knew to look in Filter to search for their tasks.

        For those of you who have not seen this functionality yet, here's how it works:

        No excuse for a new tool like Planner to lack search functionality out the box. The entirety of each entry, in addition to comments, current and completed texts, need to be searchable. Otherwise, there is an upward limit on how many tasks a user wants to archive in this system.

        I just found your comments about the filter capabilities ... and these meet our needs

        Having a search feature would also help with discovering PRECEDENT cases ... so that we treat future issues the same way as the past ones were treated .... or to benchmark current work against past discoveries.

        We could use Planner to manage some engineering and Support tasks, but without a Search feature, we would risk too much frustration finding specific tasks based upon keywords

        Ability to search all tasks in plans across all teams. When managing multiple channels and projects this is essential

        If I use cmd+F I can Find things, but if I the task is off the page I can't see what is highlighted. You should be able to hop to the search string it found.

        We would like to be able to search completed tasks as well as open tasks.

        Any news about the search function within a board? Please inform us!
        This should be a basic feature for any system/app or site. Must be available fir desktop as well as mobile device! Thank you!

        Hi. Search in Planner is mandatory. Really can't understand how a logistic tool now a days can be made without a search tool. Really hope this is implemented very soon.

        Honestly, I'm using Teams-Planner because they forced me. When I started using it, I felt a little bit satisfied (of course, my expectations were not high since it is a MS product); however, once I discovered the search works only for task titles, I really really told myself: "you see, this guys never never never will improve, they are not interested in user experience). anyway....

        Search functionality is vital. Should be like it is in Teams and Asana.

        No search feature really makes the usability of Planner a hard sell in our corporation. We are rolling out Groups but with thousands of projects / buckets in our hundreds of groups This is a must have.
        many are asking why not Google Docs ? Please add a search feature to Planner and Teams

        Searching amongst plans would be a good addition too for when there will be lots of plans (archived or not)
