Filtering cards on a project (classic)

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

Notes:

  • Projects, the all-new projects experience, is now available. For more information about Projects, see "About Projects" and for information about migrating your classic project, see "Migrating from Projects (classic)."
  • You can only create a new classic project board for an organization, user, or repository that already has at least one classic project board. If you're unable to create a classic project board, create a project board instead.

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

You can also use the "Filter cards" search bar at the top of each classic project 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.

  • Filter cards by author using author:USERNAME
  • Filter cards by assignee using assignee:USERNAME or no:assignee
  • Filter cards by label using label:LABEL, label:"MULTI-WORD LABEL NAME", or no:label
  • Filter by milestone by using milestone:MY-MILESTONE
  • Filter cards by state using state:open, state:closed, or state:merged
  • Filter by review status using review:none, review:required, review:approved, or review:changes_requested
  • Filter by check status using status:pending, status:success, or status:failure
  • Filter cards by type using type:issue, type:pr, or type:note
  • Filter cards by state and type using is:open, is:closed, or is:merged; and is:issue, is:pr, or is:note
  • Filter cards by issues that are linked to a pull request by a closing reference using linked:pr
  • Filter cards by repository in an organization-wide classic project using repo:ORGANIZATION/REPOSITORY
  1. Navigate to the classic project 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. Filter card search bar

Tip: You can drag and drop filtered cards or use keyboard shortcuts to move them between columns. For more information about keyboard shortcuts, see "Project boards" in "Keyboard shortcuts."
