When I search my Trello board for a keyword, Im usually looking for a specific comment, that can be in any of the cards. But the seach results only shows cards, and when I click the card I get to the "top" of that card, so I still need to manually read through all the comments to find what I need. With 50+ comments in a card it's a pretty big job.
I tried filtering the cards but that only filters the card titles for the given keywords, so I still can't get to the specific comment.
So the question is: how can I make a search for a keyword and find the specific comment that has the keyword?
If you'd like to search for a specific keyword on a comment, you can go to the search bar in Trello and type comment:typekeywordhere.
That will show you the card where the comment appears. While the comment won't be highlighted, as a workaround, you can click on CMD+F on your keyboard to open up your browser's search bar. Then you can type in your keyword and you'll be able to find it.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your answer. Thats what I've been doing so far. However when I get 8 cards as a result, each having 40-90 comments... Open each card, load up all the comments, make the browser search. It takes a lot of time. If I could see the list of those 20 comments that has the keyword, the process would be way faster.
Now I just don't bother going through that long process, its easier to research it again on google or ask my colleague again, or just skip the idea.
Another thing is that the browser search is weak, it doesnt have stemming and the keywords must be in the same order and position.
Anyway... Thank you for your advice.

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
