The following information only applies to team-managed projects.

To check which project type you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:

 

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 bugs

  • 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 team-managed project:

  1. Go to Project settings > Features

  2. 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.

Search for issues in a team-managed project

In the project issue navigator, you can use the text search and field filters to quickly find an issue or a set of issues in your project.

When you open the issue navigator, the list of issues defaults to showing all issues ordered from newest to oldest (by created date).

Before you begin, you’ll need to enable the issue navigator for your project.

To find issues in your project:

  1. From your project’s sidebar, select Issues.

  2. Use the text search field or built-in filters to refine your search criteria.

  3. Order and sort the issues using the options at the top of the list of issues.

  4. Select an issue to view or edit it.

  5. Select Reset to clear your search criteria.

If you're searching against a field, you can select Show full list to view the list of available options against your search criteria. If your list is too long, you can start typing to get to your option faster.

Share your issue search results in a team-managed 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:

  1. From the project’s sidebar, select Issues.

  2. Use the text search field or built-in filters to refine your search criteria.

  3. 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.
