Filtering cards on a project board

You can filter the cards on a project board to search for specific cards or view a subset of the cards.

On a card, you can click any assignee or label to filter the project board by that qualifier. To clear the search, you can click the same assignee or label again.

You can also use the "Filter cards" search bar at the top of each project board to search for cards. You can filter cards using the following search qualifiers in any combination, or by simply typing some text you'd like to search for.

  1. Navigate to the project board that contains the cards you want to filter.
  2. Above the project card columns, click into the "Filter cards" search bar and type a search query to filter the cards.
