What is the search everything?
The search everything allows you to search for anything across all of your boards. Want to filter which tasks are Stuck across all of your boards? You can! Keen to check how much work your colleague has going on? Search their name! Want to see what you’ve got to do this week? Search for which items you’ve been assigned to then filter by date.
