I'm a bit new to using JIRA, and have a hopefully quick question
My company uses JIRA Software (Cloud) and in the top right corner there is a "Search" box.
In the search, I know I can try typing in keywords to try and find tasks. I can also do a quick search on tasks assigned to me.
But I was wondering is there a way to do a "quick search" and find all the tasks that are assigned to a specific individual?
I know I can go to "Advanced Search" and there is a specific filter drop down to search by "Assignee" and I can find all the tasks assigned to a user here.
Just curious if "Quick Search" is restricted to only searching keywords.
Thanks for any advice!
Hello @Rodney Chan - I think the best screen for you to run those types of searches is through the Filter screen 🙂 There you can set all sorts of parameters to get exactly what you are looking for. There is the basic search which allows you to leverage drop down and then an advanced search where you can use JQL to write our queries.
Hope this helps and feel free to follow up with any other questions you have! Hope you are also able to join the Team '21 discussions!
Hi @Andrew Kendris !
Thanks for the response, and if you dont mind I do have a follow up question just to clarify.
I just want to make sure I got the lingo right so I am assuming that the searches are as follows
And your recommending to use the "filter screen"?
I just wanted to make sure I am looking in the right spot :)
Hello @Rodney Chan
Welcome to the community.
In my fast search of the internet I found this document that talks about some shortcuts for that Quick Search box, but the document is for JIRA Server. I'm not sure if the same shortcuts work in Cloud (and I haven't tested them).
It doesn't list anything for searching for issues assigned to other users.
Thanks for this
I also found something similar, and came to a similar conclusion that it doesnt seem to have the functionality I am looking for in the "Quick search".
I just wanted to make sure I didnt miss anything and look silly in front of my pro JIRA colleagues :p
Project managers know this problem: A “mountain of work” lays in front of you, and you don’t know how and where to tackle them. Different to-dos lie ahead, but just one task after the other can be ha...
