    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

        Search should be able to look at all fields, but particularly title, description and comments

        The filter functionality could use some more improvements. Currently it can search for a keyword in the title. But it fails when we try to search with multiple keywords.

        For example: Say there are 4 tasks with titles
        CUST0001 - Home Designs Enterprises - Design July
        CUST0001 - Home Designs Enterprises - Design August

        In the case of 100s of tasks assigned for CUST0001, if I can filter out the first task by entering "CUST0001 July" it would be great.

        Free text search for all fields on a task (possibly with option to not search in description), selectively for all planner or a specific plan.

        Available in web, Teams and mobile apps

        Power search for all text in all fields, including comments field would be excellent - similar to what is provided in Microsoft OneNote

        Need to be able to search all text on a card within one plan (rather than across ALL plans).

        It is necessary to search from the mobile app for people who work outside the office

        Filter don't work on Completed Tasks!!! :S

        -> We really need a search function that works on all plans and all status and in all text (not only in Title). Please!!!!

        Our organisation uses a number of Plans and often we find that a task could sit in more than one Plan (e.g. would "Improve HR system" sit in the HR Plan or the IT one?). It's therefore not always easy to remember where a task has been logged. Searching across all Plans is therefore vital to avoid duplication and user frustration in trying to find tasks which have already been logged.

        I would need the search function in order to have better transparency in Planner.
        So far for the "big Picture" the Outlook task gives a better option.

        It is not intuitive that search functionality would be under the Filter menu. Perhaps you could call this "Filter/Search" or "Search/Filter? Or at least add a magnifying glass icon?

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