Is there a way to search custom fields across boards?

So, if I set a custom field of Priority in all my boards and set it for NOW, SOON, SOMEDAY, is there then a way for me to search that custom field setting across all boards?   I understand I could use labels for this, but my labels are currently used for something else.  Any thoughts?

Hi Tony!

Unfortunately, Custom Fields aren't searchable at this time. This is one of the most requested features, though, and I always encourage everyone to ask for it — every voice counts! You can also send your request straight to Trello staff by emailing it to 

For now, sadly, the best option is to use Labels. Perhaps you could use the invisible label? It has all of the features of normal labels, except it's, well, invisible and doesn't show on the front of your cards.

I wish I had a better answer for you, Tony. Please let me know if I can help you in any other way!
