2. How to make use of the board filter?
The Board Filter feature is a sideboard panel that works per board.
2.1 Use the different components to switch on and off the criteria for showing the cards on the board. For example: if you filter by a given assignee, only cards assigned to the specified user will be displayed on the board.
To enable a filter criterion, activate the green checkmark to the right of its name. Enabled criteria are colored in green. Use the "or" button to add a second criteria that belongs to a certain component. To remove the additional value click on the minus sign.
For example: if you set up an assignee: Rebecca - the feature will filter out all cards on the board and only Rebeca's cards will be displayed. Use "оr" to add a second name from the dropdown list: e.g. Oliver -> the system will filter out and display all cards assigned to Rebecca and Oliver.
2.2 You can run a quick search on the board by entering: ID; assignee; title (keyword) or a tag in the search field at the top of the panel. Just fill in one of the criteria in the search field. It works with auto focus and the board will be filtered instantly while you are writing.
In the Board Filter feature, you can apply the following filter criteria:
- Assignee is / is not
- Deadline is / is not / before / after / is between / is in (x days ago) / was more than (x days ago)
- Priority is / is not
- Color is / is not
- Tag is / is not / contains / does not contain
- Size is equal to / is not equal to / is greater than / is lesser than
- Type is / is not
- Blocked state is / is not
- Watched by
- Attachments are / are not present
- Custom Fields: If you have added custom fields to your board, they will be also available as filter criteria in your board filter (e.g. "2nd Contributor", "Last Modified", custom fields from type "Dropdown", etc.).
Note: When the board filter has been activated a text with the result which is framed in green appears on the top right side of your board. It shows the number of filtered cards compared to the total number of cards on the board. Click on Reset to reset the filter.
Important: The filter is applied only over the viewable, but not over the collapsed columns and swimlanes of your board. At the moment you expand a column or a swimlane, the filter will be applied on the cards located there.
