Enable the project issue navigator
Are you on the right help page?
The following information only applies to next-gen projects.
To check which type project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:
If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project.
If you don't, you're in a classic project. Check out our classic project documentation.
The project issue navigator lets you view a list of the issues in your project, and filter them to find what you need. You can search for one or more issues using the text search field and built-in filters.
Using the issue navigator, you could search for all issues in your project that:
are assigned to Jane
were reported by Fred
are in the in progress status
have “pizza” in a text field
To enable the issue navigator for your next-gen project:
Go to Project settings () > Features
Toggle on the switch for Issue navigator
You can toggle this feature on and off any time without affecting any of your project’s issues.
The Issues link in the project sidebar.
The list of issues in the issue navigator.
Text and other filters.
Link to advanced search.
Share your issue search results in a next-gen project
You can share your refined issue searches with your colleagues. For example, you can track all the issues that are in progress, and share this URL with your team so that they can track them as well.
Want to come back to issues that are assigned to you later? You can also bookmark your issue searches to visit your issues later on.
Before you begin, you’ll need to enable the issue navigator for your project.
To bookmark or share your issue search in your project:
From the project’s sidebar, select Issues.
Use the text search field or built-in filters to refine your search criteria.
Save the query with a browser bookmark, or share the URL with your team.
We don’t support filtering for all fields in the project issue navigator just yet, but we’re working on it. If your query is too complex for the project issue navigator, click Advanced search for more filtering options.
