At any time, it is possible to open the search in awork by clicking on the action button icon in the upper right corner or by pressing the shortcut F (like find).

Simply type your search query and awork will show you the top 10 search hits and will forgive slight typos or other grammatical forms.

You can then use the settings bar at the top right to specify whether you want to see all results or only projects, tasks, users or clients. By activating the "Incl. done projects" button, you can also include units from closed projects in your search. This function allows you to perform a precise and individual search that only shows you results precisely to your needs.

awork searches not only tasks, projects, users, and clients but also the menu so that you can comfortably navigate through the search. Just try it out by searching for Projects.

In the awork search, names are generally weighted higher. This means that matches in names are displayed preferentially. In addition, awork saves the frequency of access to projects or tasks, which means that frequently used elements are ranked higher in the search results.

In addition to tasks, projects, users and clients, awork also searches the menu so that you can easily navigate through the search. Just try it out by searching for projects.

awork searches the following units in detail:

  • Menu

  • Task name

  • Task description

  • Assignee

  • Project name

  • Project description

  • Project members

  • Tags

  • Status

  • First name of user

  • Last name of user

โ˜๏ธ Pro-Tip: Edit directly from search

Some objects, such as tasks or projects, can also be edited right from search. For tasks, you simply change the status as usual, while for all other search results, you have the button for the action menu in the right margin.

What should I do if I don't find what I'm looking for?

If the item you are looking for does not appear in the search results, you will probably have to be more specific. For example, enter the project name or parts of it in the search field in addition to the task name. Similar to the search engine on the web, awork is able to provide more accurate results.
