Board Search Not Working

Hi There,

When I do a search on using the universal search for 8303, it works and I get the information that I want. See the this screen print -

However, when I search the specific board for 8303, nothing shows up. See this screen print -

It would be really great to be able to search by board.

Hi @Edward_A 

I know it's silly, but have you got a space before 8303 or two spaces after? There isn't really any reason that it shouldn't find it because it's found it across all boards, so I would hazard that something could be wrong in the search field, or the card has been moved/archived from the board?

Esme :)

Thanks for replying. 


I double checked everything.


I have it. Entered exactly like the universal search. 


Nothing is archived. 



Anyone?  This is really frustrating as the same thing is happening in the mobile app.

It seems like it only searches the title instead of everything.

For instance, I put "nextaction" without quotes in a checklist.

It won't find it.

Hi @Edward_A 

I've now tried it on mine and that's correct, it searches in the title and not the content.

This is a search across all my boards for traditional:

I would recommend you contact Trello and put in a request for this feature here.
