Searching for Cards
Learn how to use the search bar so you can find the card you're looking for.
When to use
To learn how to efficiently find information within any board. To understand the difference between searching a single board and all boards.
Searching the Active Board
To search the contents of the board that is currently open, select Show Menu > Filter Cards.
At the top of the Filter menu you can search this board by keyword(s).
Searching All Boards
To search the contents of all boards that you have access to, select the search bar at the very top of the screen.
Below is a list of search operators you can use to help you refine your search:
Returns cards assigned to a member. If you start typing @, Trello will suggest members for you. Typing "member:" also works. @me will include only your cards.
Returns labeled cards. "label:" also works.
Returns cards within a specific board. If you start typing "board:", Trello will suggest boards for you. You can search by board name, too, such as "board:Trello" to search only cards on boards with Trello in the board name.
Returns cards within the list named “name”. Or whatever you type besides “name”.
Returns cards with attachments. "has:description", "has:cover", "has:members", and "has:stickers" also work as you would expect.
Returns cards due within 24 hours. "due:week", "due:month", and "due:overdue" also work as expected. You can search for a specific day range. For example, adding "due:14" to search will include cards due in the next 14 days.
Returns cards created in the last 24 hours. "created:week" and "created:month" also work as expected. You can search for a specific day range. For example, adding "created:14" to the search will include cards created in the last 14 days.
Returns cards edited in the last 24 hours. "edited:week" and "edited:month" also work as expected. You can search for a specific day range. For example, adding "edited:21" to the search will include cards edited in the last 21 days.
description:, checklist:, comment:, and name:
Returns cards matching the text of card descriptions, checklists, comments, or names. For example, comment:"FIX IT" will return cards with “FIX IT” in a comment.
is:open and is:archived
Returns cards that are either open or archived. Trello returns both types by default if neither type is specified in the search.
Only includes cards on starred boards.
