Can't filter cards :(

All of a sudden, I can't filter cards anymore. I used to do this every day, but now the filter-button in the menu has disappeared. Any ideas? Screen Shot 2019-02-13 at 10.54.59.png

Hi Lilli,

the filter has only moved. It is right next to the search bar now.

OK now I got it working... FYI for someone who has the same issue, the filter button doesn't work until you force refresh the page. As the page typically keeps up to date without any refreshs, and I never actually close my browser windows, I had that button there, but pressing it didn't do anything. After refreshing the page, the button opens the normal filtering view. 

Thanks for help :) 

Hi, I'm slightly confused. Recently returned to Trello to give it another go. Like Lilli, there is no filter cards option in the menu. Also, no filter button next to the search bar on the top left. I force refreshed the page as described, but still nothing. 

I am expecting something with the word 'filter'. Or is this functionality now totally integrated in the search bar?

Thanks in advance!

Please have a look at this screenshot. The filter function has moved.



Thank you so much for answering!

But I don't see that filter!

That's strange. I would contact the Trello support and ask them why you don't have this function. Their email is

Thank you, I will!

I have the same issue as you Tamara, did you get some information from the support? (Posting it here may help others as well)

Hi all,

I have just met the same issue as Ulf: "search cards" and filter suddenly disappeared from my menu.

Yesterday I was still using it a lot.

Any idea how to get it back?

"Search cards..." is now back in my menu. I can work now but if there's is a way to avoid this problem in the future I'd be glad to know it.

Hi Everyone, I confirmed that it is a verbiage change (Search and Filter functionality have been merged). Trello support is going to update the documentation to ensure this change is reflected and to remove any confusion surrounding this update. Thanks for your patience.
