New search in Trello

Note: The new search experience is being rolled out incrementally. If you’re not seeing this yet, you still have the legacy search experience. You can read more about that here.

Trello gives you the ability to search for cards and boards wherever you’re working. Just type in the search box at the very top of the page. 

To search for Workspaces and members, narrow down your search with operators, or use saved searches, click Advanced search at the bottom of the Trello tab.

We have recently introduced a way for users to search across other Atlassian cloud products. If you use other Atlassian products (Confluence and Jira), you’re able to search across those products too. For example, you can search for a Jira issue or Confluence article, within the Trello search bar.

Just type in your search, and you can apply that search for Confluence and Jira by clicking the tabs.



We’ve also introduced an updated experience for our Advanced search that’s available here -

With our updated Advanced search we’ve kept all the Special Operators the same so you can continue to search just like you did before. If you want to view a list of the Special Operators on the search page you can do this by clicking on the next to the search box.
You can also view a list of them here.

Saved searches

Saved searches are available with our Premium plan and allow you to save any search you make in Advanced search by clicking on the Save this search button below the search box.

Please note, it’s no longer possible to name your Saved Searches in Advanced search.

Once you’ve saved a search you’ll then see all your Saved searched shown below the Search box so you can access them easily.

Special Operators

Search operators refine your search to help you find specific cards and create highly tailored lists. For example, to search for cards that have a specific member, you would type “has:membername”. Please note, these search operators will only apply to Trello search results.

These operators will also work in the "Archive" search bar. See Archiving and deleting cards for more details.

-operator - You can add “-” to any operator to do a negative search, such as -has:members to search for cards without any members assigned.

@name - Returns cards assigned to a member. Typing member:membername also works. @me will include only cards you’re a member of.

board:id - Returns cards from a specific board.

board:keyword returns cards on boards with the keyword in the board name, for example board:Trello would return cards on boards with “Trello” in the board name.

created:day - 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.

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.

due:day - Returns cards due within 24 hours. due:week returns cards that are due within the following 7 days. 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. You can also search for due:complete or due:incomplete to search for due dates that are marked as complete or incomplete.

edited:day - 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.

has:attachments - Returns cards with attachments. has:descriptionhas:coverhas:members, and has:stickers also work as you would expect.

is:open returns open cards. is: archived returns archived cards. If neither is specified, Trello will return both types.

is:starred - Only include cards on starred boards.

#labelcolor or #labelname - Returns cards with a specific label. label:labelname and label:labelcolor also work. For example, label:"FIX IT" will return cards with the label named “FIX IT”. #label also works.

list:name - Returns cards within the list named “name”. Or whatever you type besides “name”.

sort: - Returns cards sorted by creation date, due date, or edited date. sort:createdsort:duesort:editedsort:-edited work as you would expect.
