Help to advanced search: search not only card names, but also more fields (descr.,comm,check)


I need help to find a simple way/operator to search in all (4?) fields at the same time (e.g. card name, description, comments, checklist), and not only one field.

One field: I know that it is possible, since this is on Trellos own guidelines.

Multiple fields: I know this is possible, but i do not have a simple and easy way to do it.

MY TOO COMPLEX SOLUTION: I came up with a way to do it. But this required too much writing. My solution (example search for wording "fix it" in all 4 fields at the same time) is the following where you can simply add or -x extra search criteria: 

description:x, comment:x, checklist:x, name:x, x=fix it

WISH - ONE OPERATOR FOR ALL 4 FIELDS ("ONE OPERATOR?" = "description:x, comment:x, checklist:x, name:x")

Looking forward to hearing your inputs!

@Christopher_Holdgaard_Bukh have you tested searching without any modifiers? It just searches everything I think. It certainly searches more than the card title.

I believe you are right!
